Art, Music and Community Come Together for Lennon Inspired "Imagine There's No Hunger" Concert

The Jerry Garcia Foundation will present a Holiday Art/Music benefit to support the "Imagine There's No Hunger" program established by Yoko Ono Lennon and WhyHunger

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 15, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — In its ongoing mission to support meaningful causes through the arts, The Jerry Garcia Foundation will host a Holiday Concert at the Harmonia Yoga Arts Studio on December 16th to benefit WhyHunger. Inspired by John Lennon and his song, "Imagine," the "Imagine There's No Hunger" campaign endeavors to turn the dream of a world without hunger into a reality. 

The Jerry Garcia Foundation is donating a collection of Garcia's visual art to the WhyHunger organization. Select pieces will be on exhibit at Harmonia on the night of the concert as well. All proceeds generated from the concert and fine art will support the WhyHunger mission.

In addition, well-known rock poster artist, Stanley Mouse, has created a poster for the holiday benefit. Mouse has produced art for both the Beatles and the Grateful Dead.

The concert will be presented at Harmonia, located in the former Sausalito Record Plant recording studio. The Record Plant is legendary in the music world and the building has been minimally renovated to preserve its historic integrity. Countless luminaries have graced the studio's doors. In October 1972, John and Yoko attended the Record Plant's masquerade party opening celebration, dressed as trees.

A partial list of iconic artists that have recorded at the Record Plant include:
The Grateful Dead, Pharaoh Sanders, Jefferson Airplane, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder
Bob Marley and the Wailers, Sly and the Family Stone, Van Morrison, Carlos Santana,
and the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

The Jerry Garcia Foundation has invited new talent and known artists to come together to perform in the historic space once again.

"We are grateful to the many artists sharing their gifts to support a peaceful world without hunger." Manasha Garcia, Co-Founder of the Jerry Garcia Foundation
