Bob Dylan's Paintings: Work From His First-Ever Art Exhibit

October 9, 2007 4:32 PM ET

As we told you in the Maroon 5 issue of Rolling Stone, the first-ever exhibit of Bob Dylan's original paintings will open at the Kunstsammlungen art museum in Chemnitz, Germany, on October 28th. Museum director Ingrid Massinger first came across Dylan's paintings in his 1994 book, Drawn Blank, which contains the singer's sketches made between 1989 and 1992. "I was fascinated to learn of Ingrid's interest in my work," Dylan said in a statement. "It gave me the impetus to realize the vision I had for these paintings many years ago. If not for this interest, I don't know if I even would have revisited them." The exhibit runs through February 3rd.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
