Opening today, May 12, 2009-The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex is host to John Lennon: The New York City Years-a retrospective of never-seen-before artifacts outlining Lennon’s time spent in New York as music, art, film, social and political activist. Created by widow Yoko Ono and curated by Jim Henke, the exhibit features photographs, the guitar used for Lennon’s performance during the historic Elton John concert at Madison Square Garden in 1974, original handwritten lyrics, letters in support of Lennon’s American visa, his famed ‘New York City’ t-shirt and the clothes he wore the night of his death.

In the true spirit of the city that never sleeps, the exhibition encompasses all that Lennon loved about New York City and will show with the extended hours of Sunday-Thursday from 11:00am to 10:00pm and Friday-Saturday from 11:00am to Midnight. A portion of the cost for each ticket will be donated to Spirit Foundations, a charity brought to life by Lennon and Ono for their various passions and initiatives.
