Wow, just stumbled across Ringo at his art event in NYC the other day. He looks great. You can even see some of his artwork and in typical Ringo fashion he is throwing up the peace sign in almost every photo!! What a great find. They even have a few photographs of Steven Van Zandt of the E! Street Band and Billy Squier, "The Stoke", anyone?

I'm so excited to have found these pictures of Ringo! Always great to see him doing things in a normal setting these days!

Actually, I live in NYC and was passing by the Gallery it was held at, Pop International, and made a mental note to look it up. I did a lot of searching for the pictures and found these. I was really just pleasantly surprised at how good Ringo looked and interested in seeing a few new art pieces by him and perhaps discussing his art in general. I also liked seeing all the other "past" musicians supporting him and how they are all still interconnected.

Fair enough, sorry. Do you think the art has any merit?

Ringo does all of his art on the computer. For an unartistic person like me who can't do anything with the paint on my computer, his work is pretty good. To be honest, I think that many people buy them only because Ringo made them. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Ringo Starr’s 800-pound ‘Peace and Love’ sculpture finally finds a home in Beverly Hills

la-1561070339-lwsy69wzrh-snap-image.jpgImage Enlarger

When Ringo Starr decided to live full time in Beverly Hills, he planned to honor his adoptive hometown with an extravagant gift — an 800-pound polished steel monument of his hand making a peace sign.

The city politely declined.

“The commission thanks Mr. Starr for his generous offer but unfortunately the donation did not meet the Fine Art criteria,” the city’s now-disbanded Fine Art Commission wrote after it voted unanimously to reject the Beatle’s gift in September 2017.

“They said, sorry Sir Ringo, thanks for your proposal, but you’re not an artist, and the work is not art,” said sculptor Jeremy Morrelli, who helped Starr produce the version of the statue intended for City Hall. “They produced a definition of art which is extraordinary. They would have rejected Van Gogh or Picasso on those grounds.”

Tuesday night, the city changed its tune. The City Council authorized placement of the 8-foot-tall artwork on Santa Monica Boulevard, where is it expected to attract throngs of tourists when it is unveiled this fall.

“We want to be a city of love and peace,” Mayor John Mirisch told the city’s Arts and Culture Commission last week as it debated which location to recommend to the council. “When you take a picture with City Hall in the background, it symbolizes that.”

A city spokesman said the previous commission “had a narrow criteria” for public art and that the council could overrule it. But the journey from no to yes was littered with obstacles...

That original first post is so shill-y, even though they deny it I think it's a good case of 'hailcorporate', especially as they never returned. 

 

As regards Beverly Hills, bit silly to reject it in the first place, it's something made by a Beatle! If it was one of John's socks from 1961 that was put in a glass case I'm sure they would have accepted it.

I don't know why, but this will forever be my favorite painting of Ringo's. I even used it a couple years ago for a project where I had to analyze a painting by a famous artist and give a presentation on it.
