In honor of the late Jerry Garcia‘s birthday, the Jerry Garcia Foundation has donated several pieces of the legendary musician’s fine art to various organizations. These new editions, including the pieces Golden Meadows, Butterfly Study, and Mandolin Player were selected as gift grants for a handful of like-minded charitable organizations.
This most recent round of beneficiaries include Musicians On A Mission, Jerry Day, Bread and Roses, WhyHunger, Fender Music Foundation, Psylodelic Gallery, HeadCount, Reverb, Jake Peavy Foundation, and Shimer College. Says Keelin Garcia, Jerry’s daughter, “It is such an honor to be able to share my father’s creative spirit with so many charitable organizations that support such worthy causes.”
Jerry Garcia’s fine art can be viewed at a number of upcoming events, including at Musicians On A Mission‘s Jerry Garcia birthday celebration at the Strand Center for the Arts in Lakewood, NJ on August 26th and at Psylodelic Gallery‘s The Art of Jerry Garcia exhibit in Pomeroy, OH through November 16th.
