Jerry Garcia's Most Astounding Paintings and Sketches

The work of the Grateful Dead guitarist moves from music-related watercolors to a portrait of Saddam Hussein
Jerry Garcia was nearly as prolific an artist as he was a guitar player, attending classes at the San Francisco Art Institute as a kid and eventually producing over 2,000 pieces. For the first time ever, that work will be displayed in a museum setting, collected as part of a new exhibition, "Art in Pop," which runs through January 4th, 2015 at the Centre National d'art Contemporain le Magasin in Grenoble, France. The art on display includes both concrete pencil images and watercolor abstractions: "How Fine," for instance, gets psychedelic, offering an out-there depiction of a face with an unusual eye. In "Big Bird," Garcia shows his sense of humor by sketching the beloved Sesame Street character opening the sky into the world of Mister Rogers. In conjunction with the exhibit, Rolling Stone has compiled a gallery of the singer-songwriter's best pieces, with captions provided by his daughter Keelin, wife Manasha and Roberta Weir. More of his art – along with pieces from Weir and Mickey Hart – can be viewed at the Garcia Weir Gallery, the online home of the Weir Gallery, which showcased local artists in Berkeley, California from 1987 to 1995.

CYMATICS: Science Vs. Music - Nigel Stanford: Musician Uses Sound to Manipulate Tesla Coil, Fire, and Matter

Nigel Stanford isn’t just a musical genius, but by the looks of this video he has a strong passion for science as well. I have a personal love for cymatics, Tesla, and the Ruben’s tube (long tube of fire), and if you can bring all of these features together with amazing music you have blown my mind! What’s even better is the fact that everything you see in Stanford’s video is 100% pure. Besides some amazing camera work, no experiment was fabricated. In fact, you can see the behind scenes of this video HERE. Musician Uses Sound to Manipulate Tesla Coil, Fire, and Matter.
