John Lennon Talk
Tuesday // May 17 // 11AM
In anticipation of our upcoming exhibition Who Shot Rock & Roll, and as part of the the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus' visit to Birmingham, the Birmingham Museum of Art will host an open lecture/presentation by Tyler Winick, Creative Coordinator of the Lennon Bus, on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 11:00 AM in the Museum's Steiner Auditorium. Tyler Winick will discuss the legacy of John Lennon, the role that the Lennon Bus plays in fullfilling what Yoko Ono has envisioned would be John Lennon's dreams, and the incredible technology for music and film recording that exists on the Lennon Bus. Who Shot Rock & Roll will include several photographs of John Lennon, including a particularly moving portrait of John and Yoko, just weeks before his death.
The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus will spend three days in Birmingham with a series of lectures, tours, and concerts, including stops at UAB's Alys Stephens Center, the Birmingham Railroad Park, and Birmingham City Hall. The concert scheduled for Monday, May 16 at the Birmingham Railroad Park is now a benefit concert for victims of the recent tornadoes. The concert will be broadcast live on Fox 6 and viewers will be able to call in and make donations to the American Red Cross.
