CINCINNATI -- In addition to his work with The Beatles and his humanitarian outreach, John Lennon left behind a legacy of art, and now Cincinnatians can get to see it up close.

The Road Show Company is hosting an exhibition of the artwork of John Lennon. It will run from Friday, Oct. 2 to Sunday, Oct. 4 at the Kenwood Towne Center.

The gallery is free and open to the public. It also includes discussion with collection expect Nim Vaswani.

He will be in the gallery during the exhibit and provide insight into the history and stories behind the pieces.

Organizers said art was one of Lennon’s first loves and he was drawing long before picking up a guitar. The company said human love and communication are at the heart of all his artwork.

The exhibit features limited edition prints that are adapted from Lennon’s original drawings. The images have been selected through “rare archival sketches.”

Each print is approved and hand-signed by Yoko Ono.

The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Patrons can visit for info.
