Pulse: A&E: Paint It Black

WMGK’s seventh annual art fest shows rockers’ other creative sides

For the month of March the main rotunda within the Shops at Liberty Place is transformed into a high-schooler’s dream bedroom — concert posters and rock ‘n’ roll photographs plastered everywhere. More than 200 pieces of rare original art, posters, handwritten song lyrics, lithographs and photographs by and of some legendary rock stars are showcased to the public. Think Jerry Garcia (pictured), John Lennon, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Ringo Starr, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Carlo Santana, John Entwistle of The Who, Tony Bennett, Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones and U2, too, among others. Chances are you’ve heard some of these bands live. And perhaps you even have photos of your own, but most likely they don’t hold a candle to these shots. So don’t just look — all items will be available for purchase and a portion of sales benefits the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

March 2nd through 31st, Shops at Liberty Place, 16th and Chestnut streets. Free. wmgk.com.
