      Dora, I read it just after posting and it isn’t as lengthy or detailed as I would have hoped. Also, I was thinking it was going to be an exhibit in The Smithsonian itself, but it’s at a gallery in Florida.

  2. Wow, Dylan truly is an artist through and through. I didn’t realize he paints and does sculptures!

      Christian, I knew he did paintings that found their way onto album covers, but I had no idea he’s created hundreds of mixed media artworks. Would love to see this exhibit if it ever comes around here.

      He’s a talented guy! Besides his song lyrics he’s also a poet.

    I like the guitar in black and white. The paintings are not my cup of tea. But I wonder when he had the time…(K)

      The guitar one is in the same style as the cover of his Planet Waves album. I like that one also. Yes, when did he have the time??

    I didn’t know he was that good. I like the one with the guy with the cigarette…all of them are cool though.

      I do too, Max! Was surprised to learn how prolific he has been with his art.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I have a book with some of his early drawings, Writings and Drawings by Bob Dylan, published 1973.

      You’re welcome. Neat that you have something from him in that time period. I hope the exhibit travels the country or settles somewhere near here (e.g. Chicago.)
