Via Beatles News: Rare Beatles Artwork to be Unveiled during the Toronto Film Festival

John Brower, a promoter of The Toronto Rock and Roll Revival held at Varsity Stadium on September 13, 1969, brings to Toronto a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the only authorized physical copy of artwork created by all four Beatles.

The original was given to the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 as a gift from The Beatles who were unable to attend. The magnificent example measuring 40 x 60 inches will be unveiled at The Hard Rock Cafe on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, at an exclusive Film Festival party. Doors open @ 9 P.M.

The Monterey artwork is interesting. The article oversells it in two regards however.

The amount to which all four collaborated in its creation, apart from all signing it, is questionable to say the least. It is most likely a Paul piece (who was on the board of Monterey) with a space left for the signatures.

More importantly, were the claim of equal contribution by all four to its creation to be proved, it is not, as Bower claims, "...the only time they all participated in such an artistic endeavor." And the other item that does exist, and whose creation was photographed by Robert Whitaker, is a painting they titled "Images of a Woman". It was painted while they were cooped up in the Tokyo Hilton during the 1966 Japan tour, each Beatle given a quarter of the 30-inch by 40-inch paper as they sat around a table with a lamp sat on it that they all worked towards it.Where the base of the lamp had been, they each signed their segment of the work. It was sold last year for $155,250.

I definitely agree with the opinions that Paul's portion looks like it represents a vagina.

Oh, gosh, yes, I always figured that was deliberate.

Images of a Woman is the one piece of Beatles memorabilia I would love to have if I had the money and opportunity.

From The Examiner:

Dark Hall Mansion announced Sept 8 its latest limited edition Beatles release, "May I Introduce To You" by contemporary artist SHAG, will be available only through a special lottery to take place this week. The company said that it will release the work in conjunction with the Beatles' Apple Corps Ltd. as screen prints this Thursday. The new work is inspired by the Beatles' movie “Yellow Submarine.”

(You can see pictures of the prints in the slide show.)

 

Here's the Dark Hall Mansion page with higher-res images.

I think this qualifies as art of some sort.

World’s Largest Corn Maze celebrates the Beatles

During the last few years the staff at Richardson’s Adventure Farm have saluted the country’s Military, observed the 100 year anniversary of the Girl Scouts, and this year, they are celebrating 50 years since the release of the Beatles’ first album—Please Please Me.

“We wouldn’t be doing all of this if it wasn’t so much fun,” said George. “It’s great to see people connect with agriculture in a fun way.”

Their tribute is displayed in a 28-acre corn maze with an 11-mile labyrinth of trails and is slated as the World’s Largest Corn Maze.

That last one is one of the puzzles that was posted at the Beatles LOLs thread. Sure hope they're crediting the sites they're getting these from.

This is a mural on Santa Monica Blvd. heading east towards the 101 freeway that I've been meaning to snap for the longest time. Interesting choice of images from the Mad Day Out shoot.

Someday I'll go back and shoot a higher-res version, but I had the red light and finally remembered to just go ahead and get something.
