LA-based Ramones fans and art lovers won’t want miss the chance to check out The Art of Dee Dee Ramone: A Birthday Memorial Show taking place from September 18 – 26th at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. The opening reception is scheduled for what would have been Dee Dee’s 59th Birthday, Saturday September 18th, from 8:00 until 11:00 PM. I’m sure it will be quite a scene-making opportunity.
Dee Dee Ramone will forever be an enigmatic punk rock icon. While most are familiar with his musical legacy as a founding member and songwriter in the world famous Ramones, many are less aware of his talent for art and painting. La Luz de Jesus Gallery has assembled an exhibition of over thirty original pieces, many of which will be displayed for the very first time at this extraordinary event sanctioned by Dee Dee’s Estate to honor the rock legend. Also debuting at the show is a special Limited Edition commemorative archival lithograph featuring one of Dee Dee’s quintessential self-portraits “Dee Dee Ramone: The Blue Dragon,” as seen above. Somebody in LA who reads this blog, please go and email me a report!
The Art of Dee Dee Ramone runs until September 26th at La Luz de Jesus Gallery, 4633 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90027.
