[Posted by Adam Forrest on Wednesday, 12/26/12 2:09 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
After last invading Kensington in December 2009, the Beatles return to Kensington Gallery in San Diego on December 28 and 29, 2012, in an exhibit entitled "A Hard Day's Nightstand," along with an impressive contingent of non-traditional furniture artists, all of whom are SDSU alumni and grad students.
The Beatles portion of the show will combine art and artifacts, including an actual brick from the Beatles early-60's Liverpool home the Cavern Club, a speck of John Lennon's hair with certificate of authenticity, rare Beatles photographs, an authentic Comiskey Park stadium chair that "witnessed" their August 20, 1965 concert, a leaf from Paul's boyhood home, and other seldom-seen, often quirky memorabilia.
The first 50 people who attend the opening will receive a Beatle candle, designed specifically for this show.
The "A Hard Day's Nightstand" takes place this Friday, December 28, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, December 29, from 12:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Regular hours are Wednesday through Friday, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m, and Saturdays noon to 7:00 p.m. The exhibit closes on February 13, 2013. Admission is free. Kensington Gallery is located at 4186 Adams Ave, San Diego, CA 92116, corner of Adams Ave. and Edgeware Rd. For more information, email info@KensingtonGallery.org or phone (619) 534-8120.
