Bob Dylan Opening Art Exhibit

The year of 2009 has been a time for Bob Dylan to branch out.  First he announced his new Christmas CD and now Mr. Zimmerman has announced that he is embarking on another venture: opening an art exhibition in late 2010.
According to Reuters, the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen will house Dylan’s 30 acrylic paintings that will be presented in two separate series.  One will be titled “The Brazil” series while the other will be “The Drawn Blank” series.  Paintings from the latter set have already been featured in Germany and Britain.
A spokesman for Dylan and his new artwork explained that he was unsure what the acrylics would depict and did not know the meaning behind the titles of either of the series.
“Bob Dylan’s visual artistic practice has only been discussed by art historians to a limited extent,” explained museum curator Kasper Monrad, “so critical examination and interpretation are called for.”
Dylan’s art showcase will be officially opened to the public in Fall of 2010.
(The painting shown above is from Dylan’s 2007 “Drawn Blank” series entitled, “Train Tracks.”)
