Bob Dylan has agreed to allow the first-ever exhibition of his work at Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz, beginning 28 October 2007. Although Dylan has been a committed visual artist for more than four decades, this three-month event - titled "The Drawn Blank Series" - will mark the first museum showing of his work. Exclusively for this exhibition, Bob Dylan has produced more than 200 remarkably intense color variations on pictorial motifs from a book of drawings and sketches done from 1989 to 1992, which were published in 1994 under the title Drawn Blank by Random House. In the book's preface, Dylan explained that these works were intended as sketches for paintings that he eventually planned to complete. These now fully realized works - photo-lithographs transferred to deckle-edged paper - have been stunningly reworked by the artist in watercolor and gouache and will be displayed for the first time in Chemnitz.
