On Staten Island, an art show featuring previously unseen artwork has been made available to the public. The exhibition “Rose From The Dead: A Retrospective of Grateful Dead Artwork” showcases the art of Antonio Reonegro, known for his Grateful Dead designs of the 1980s and 1990s. Among other things, he designed numerous backstage passes, which went unnoticed by the public, because naturally, backstage passes are hard to come by, even on Dead tour.
These credentials, and other art, will be on display at the Wagner College Gallery in Staten Island, NY from now until January 5th. Hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 11am-4pm, and extended hours on Thursday until 11pm.
Check out some of Reonegro’s backstage pass designs. Thanks to Relix for the link.
