This year, music icon Bob Dylan celebrates his 75th birthday. This new work honors his influence in popular music and culture for more than five decades. "DYLAN: From Greenwich Village to Nashville" chronicles the life of Bob Dylan and traces his path from his time in the early 1960's in Greenwhich Village to his arrival in Nashville where he recorded his ground breaking album Blonde on Blonde which critics often rank as one of the greatest albums of all time. This work was crafted using paper, collage, assemblage & mixed media on canvas and is 60 x 48 in. (152.4 x 121.92 cm) A few of the many discarded and repurposed items used to create the image include: 1964 and 1978 Dylan concert tickets • 1960 subway transit coins are the buttons on his jacket and shirt • Vintage reel-to-reel recording tape within his elbow and lower jacket • 1960 Polaroid’s (one used in his cheek) • 1965 postdated handwritten card from Greenwich Village • A vintage photo of Hibbing High School along with a Tony Rosa Grocery Store matchbook cover, also from Hibbing, Minnesota, Dylan’s hometown • 1960 Circle In Square folk song flyer
