(Courtesy of SF Weekly: November 14, The Hanging Dead Deadheads will be staring at the walls at "The Art of the Dead," a new exhibit of poster art and other assorted Grateful Dead art paraphernalia like silk-screens, photos, album covers, lithographs, logos, postcards, and tickets. Original watercolors by the late Jerry Garcia and posters like Alton Kelley's now-famous "Skull and Roses" are among the 75 to 100 framed pieces in the show. After this premiere Bay Area showing, the exhibit, like the band's recently disbanded family of fans, will pack up and hit the road, trucking to galleries across the country. The exhibit opens at 7 p.m. (and continues through January 1997) at Artrock Gallery, 1153 Mission, S.F.)
