John Lennon Drawings Get Exhibit at Milwaukee Museum

By |

A rare collection of John Lennon's drawings is set to display at a Milwaukee museum. Starting this Saturday until September 1st, "Coming Together Through the Art of John Lennon" will be open to the public at the Waukesha County Historical Society Museum. Among the items in the collection are 27 pencil and pen drawings as well as five lithographs and serigraphs. This is the first time the drawings have been open to the public, as Yoko Ono has prevented the artwork from being photographed in full because of possible counterfeiting. The collection is estimated to be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. An anonymous donor loaned the artwork to the museum, as well as other memorabilia like the microphone Lennon used to record "Imagine." Ono herself owns roughly 1,700 Lennon drawings.
