BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A rock legend will be selling some of his artwork in Boston this week to raise money for charity.
Ringo Starr will be putting on an art exhibition at the Wang Theatre from Tuesday, May 31 to Thursday, June 2 ahead of his band, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, playing a show at the theatre Thursday.
The exhibition, "The Art of Ringo Starr", will feature limited edition artworks made by Starr himself. Each piece is individually numbered and is signed by Starr.
"These are absolutely collector's items," Joe Donlavey, the director of sales and corporate development for the Boch Center, told WBZ's James Rojas. "We have people that have come in from around the world who have come in actually to buy these pieces and take them with them when they go."
All of the artworks are available for purchase and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Lotus Foundation, a fund that helps people dealing with illnesses like cancer, victims of domestic violence, people experiencing homelessness, and animals in need.
The exhibition is free to attend and open to the public from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31, from noon to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 2nd. The Boch Center will host a special reception on June 1 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Starr's show at the Wang Theatre is on June 2 at 7:30 p.m. The show is sold out, but tickets are selling for as low as $95 on Ticketmaster.
