THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME ANNEX NYC will present JOHN LENNON: THE NEW YORK CITY YEARS to open in MAY 2009. This exhibit presents exclusive artifacts from the life and work of JOHN LENNON, and will feature never-before-seen items that uniquely commemorate LENNON's life in NEW YORK CITY.
"JOHN would have been so pleased that THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME ANNEX IN NEW YORK is honoring his life and work. It was a city we called home for many years and I so hope it will be a true gift to NEW YORK CITY's residents and visitors that have been such supportive fans," said YOKO ONO.
"YOKO ONO has been very generous to THE HALL OF FAME over the years, and we are delighted to be able to work with her on this new exhibit," VP/Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs, for the NEW YORK CITY ANNEX JIM HENKE said. "JOHN LENNON spent the last nine years of his life in NEW YORK, and he loved the city. This exhibit will examine those years and the many things JOHN accomplished while in NEW YORK."
