I Know It’s Only The Rolling Stones, But I Like It (Sticky Fingers Original Logo by John Pasche)
With The Rolling Stones currently on tour celebrating their 50th year together as a band, Broome Street Gallery’s current Rolling Stones-themed exhibit distinguishes itself from the many other Stones exhibits we have seen for including not only photographs of the band and its iconic remembers (by various equally legendary photographers), but also its exciting display of pop art sculptures, tour posters, rare album cover art, caricatures and realist paintings, many of them by Stones’ rhythm guitarist Ron Wood. Here are a few of our favorite pieces from the show.
Keith in NY, 1991 By Sebastian Kruger
Mick Jagger By Andy Warhol
Some Girls Original Artwork By Hubert Kretzschmar
Ron Wood By Russell Young
Self Portrait By Ron Wood
Voodoo Mick Guitar Painted By Ron Wood
Bigger Bang Limited Edition Print, 2007
Mick Jagger By Russell Young; Guitar by Ron Wood in Foreground
Rolling Stones Live By Ron Wood
Saxophone Fountain Sculpture
The gallery has many more pieces and they change them up at regular intervals since there is way more art in this collection than currently fit in space, so you never know what you might see! I am not even the hugest Rolling Stones fan and I would rate this as a Must See exhibit for both art and music fans. Luckily, you still have almost two months to check it out!
The Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Rocking the Art World will be on exhibit at Broome Street Gallery, Located at 498 Broome Street (at West Broadway), Soho NYC until February 4th, 2013. Gallery Hours are Monday – Sunday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
