grateful dead "one more saturday night exhibit at pop int'l gallery, soho

i stopped by the pop international gallery in soho yesterday to check out the "one more saturday night" exhibit of grateful dead backstage passes artwork and photos.  the backstage passes - and the artwork that sprung from them - were simply fantastic.  even better, scott weiner took the time to explain the back story of how antonio reonegro went from the commission he was charged with to create backstage passes for the grateful dead tours (starting in the early 1980s) to the larger than life "look back" pieces of those very same passes on the gallery walls that he created years later.

if your in (or near) soho, don't pass up the opportunity to check out these incredible pieces!
