Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart to Showcase Art Collection in June

Current Dead & Company and former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart will display his newest art collection during the band’s Summer Farewell Tour stops in Washington D.C. and Short Hills, NJ this June. These private, in-person appearances come as a rarity and will be exclusive one-of-a-kind showings to cap off the band’s, and Hart’s, illustrious career.

Art of Mickey Hart, the title of his newest collection, will showcase his creative journey between art, music, and science. Some of the pieces contained in these presentations were exhibited as a one-man feature at the Coral Springs Museum of Art in early 2020, but still connect to his fresh work.

Joining the Grateful Dead in 1967, Hart has spent over 50 years crafting some of the biggest musical performances in the industry’s history and is now looking forward to showing fans paintings that back his awarded career on canvas.

“These visual representations from my sonic-driven world are snapshots into the music I am making. The basis of all life is vibratory, from the cosmos to human organism to the rhythms of nature and the music that come from what we make, from what we call culture. These are the worlds of rhythm that envelop us on a daily basis. Understanding these rhythms is essential in our daily lives. These works have been drummed, vibrated into existence. This technique is essential in the creation of my art.”

Through his inner self and audacious curiosity, the ongoing love to express creativity is what has pushed Hart so much beyond music. The Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution have also welcomed the artist to be a spokesperson and pillar to represent music traditions.

Hart now completes his long, experienced journey with Bob Weir, John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti as a part of Dead & Company’s 31-show farewell tour.
