The exhibition featured over 40 trailblazers of the art world including Keith Haring, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Space Invader, Ryan McGinness, Camille Rose Garcia, Clare Rojas, Cleon Peterson, CYRCLE, D*FACE, Dana Louise Kirkpatrick, Deedee Cheriel, Dzine, Estevan Oriol, Evan Hecox, FAILE, Gary Panter, HAZE, James Cauty, Jamie Reid, Jen Stark, Lee Quinones, Mark Mothersbaugh, Monica Canilao, POSE, Ravi Zupa, RETNA, Revok, Stanley Donwood, Winston Smith, WK Interact, and more.

The show itself has a great lineage, connecting the dots from a the past two generations of artists who have, for lack of a better term, stood on the outside of typical and traditional art career expectations. One of the major highlights of the exhibition will be that a portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Chicago Arts Partnerships In Education (CAPE), an organization which inspires students to be passionate about their education by weaving visual and performing arts into their classroom lessons. They bring academic subjects to life through art, and partner teaching artists with Chicago Public School teachers to develop original, creative lesson plans.

Rolling Stone magazine features Dennis Morris | Bob Marley: The Stories Behind 17 Rare and Unseen Images

March 25 2014 . 07:16pm

British photographer Dennis Morris was a high school student in London when he first met Bob Marley. “I was into Jamaican music, and I read that he was coming over to tour England,” Morris recalls. “So I bunked off school, went to the Speak Easy Club, where he was playing that day, and waited and waited. Eventually he arrived, and I said, ‘Can I take your picture?’ He said, ‘Yeah, man, come in.'”

Morris ended up joining Marley and the Wailers on their 1974 tour of northern England, kicking off a close professional relationship that lasted to the end of the reggae superstar’s life seven years later. “I call this one ‘Burnin”,” Morris says of the trio of images at left. “That was from that early tour – we were sitting together, and he said, ‘Let me show you how to smoke a spliff, Dennis.” He laughs. “That was my initiation.”

On March 29th, a new exhibit called “Bob Marley: GIANT” will open at Los Angeles’ Known Gallery, showcasing some of Morris’ greatest photos of Marley. Read on for more rare and unseen images from the show, plus Morris’ memories of the stories behind the photos. And make sure to pick up Rolling Stone‘s new special collector’s edition on Bob Marley for much more on the greatest reggae artist of all time
