Hey, if you’re some kind of Rolling Stones completist fan then you might want to check out This Exhibit, where you can also find this framed sculpture of the band’s famous Sticky Fingers mouth and tongue logo, which is made from hundreds of tiny photo badges of the faces of the Stones themselves.
How cool! You can see that there are photos of the guys from every era of the band.
This piece must have been fun to create!

Morrison Hotel Gallery is excited to have legendary photographer and gallery co-owner Henry Diltz exhibit some of his most well known work, and sign copies of his latest book Unpainted Faces (Morrison Hotel Publishing), at the 124 Prince Street gallery, on Wednesday, December 11th, 2013.
Keith Richards and Ron Wood
Morrison Hotel Gallery and Diltz will be introducing very large 40 x 60 prints of some of his most amazing and iconic photographs. The event will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, is free of charge and will be open to the public. Copies of Henry’s book will be on sale at the gallery and all images will be available for purchase.
In the world of Rock n’ Roll photographers, there are none as extraordinary as Henry Diltz. For over 40 years, his work has graced hundreds of album covers and has been featured in books, magazines and newspapers.
His unique artistic style has produced powerful photographic essays of Woodstock, The Monterey Pop Festival, The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix and scores of other legendary artists.
A founding member of the Modern Folk Quartet (whose albums in the early 60s were produced by Phil Spector), Diltz is as much at home as a musician on tour as he is a visual historian of the last four decades of popular music. The rapport he’s developed with his musician friends, along with his down-to-earth-grin and frequent laugh, enables him to capture the candid shots that convey a rare feeling of trust and intimacy with his subjects.
HENRY DILTZ: An Exhibition and Book Signing is Open to the Public Wednesday, December 11th from 7 to 9 PM at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, 124 Prince Street, NYC.
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.

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
