OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Museum of Art exhibit, “Beatles: I Saw the Photograph,” opened June 11 for a brief one-week show. The collection of over a dozen Beatles photos and one-of-a-kind Beatles memorabilia is an ancillary exhibition to the “Come Together at OMA: Art After Dark Beatles Tribute,” taking place June 17.
The collection is on loan from Vincent Vigil who has amassed over 100 Beatles photos. On display are photos depicting the band and members spanning from 1958 to 1980. Included are photographs by Annie Leibowitz and Linda McCartney.
“We’re really excited to have an exhibit that educates people about the Beatles from the first band to the day John Lennon was shot,” Danielle Susalla, Oceanside Museum of Art assistant director, said.
“It’s a really powerful display,” Susalla added.
The culmination Art After Dark event features the Beatles tribute band, “Help!” including dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio, live body painting, and an interactive mural project.
