Lennon Exhibit Raises 32,000 meals

Imagine there’s no hunger . . . an exhibit to help raise funds for Second Harvest Food Bank, raised 32,000 meals during its three-day run in downtown Santa Cruz.


Legacy Fine Art & Productions produces the traveling art exhibit featuring the artwork of John Lennon. Ms. Yoko Ono Lennon created this program with the specific intent of helping local non-profit organizations in every city the exhibit visits. For the past 20 years, the exhibit has benefitted community-based non-profits ranging from food banks to hurricane relief efforts.

“The reception from everyone we dealt with to produce this exhibit— the food bank, the media, Red Tree Partners and the general public— was amazingly positive in every regard,” according to Rudy Siegel of Legacy.  “Santa Cruz really embodied the spirit and vibe that these exhibits promote, which is peace and love.  John would have been very proud to be a part of the event.”

Thanks to everyone involved in putting the show together and to everyone that attended. Every $1 donated provides four healthy meals to people in need.
