Morrison Hotel Gallery Will Celebrate The Grammys and the Legacy of KISS with Career-Spanning Exhibit

Career-Spanning Exhibit and Special Appearances by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley

In celebration of Grammy Week, on Saturday, February 13th from 6 to 8 PM, Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel will honor KISS with a career-spanning photographic exhibit, and debut the first edition pieces from the KISS + UKIYO-E Project. From 6:00 to 6:30 PM, KISS founders and rock n’ roll icons Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will make a very special appearance.

Morrison Hotel Gallery salutes the Grammys and the legacy of the seminal rock band with an exhibition that will feature iconic and revealing images of the group along its journey from fiery upstarts to megastars. The exhibit will also include the debut of the KISS + UKIYO-E Project which showcases a unique selection of stunning multi-colored wood block prints, representative of one of Japan’s most revered traditional genre of art. The KISS Ukiyo-e are first edition prints, limited to only 200, and are signed by the band. The ‘KISS Ukiyo-e’ project started in fall of 2014 as the first of its kind collaboration with a team of Japanese master artisans, and has culminated in these wonderful pieces of fine art being displayed here in their first comprehensive international feature exhibit. Widely popularized during the 1600s in Edo era Japan, Ukiyo-e famously depicted current events and often illustrious entertainment industry figures and scenes, and thus this contemporary collaboration with KISS is the perfect modern day continuation of the Ukiyo-e tradition.



On this day in KISSTORY - February 9, 1999 - the Playboy issue featuring the 'Girls of KISS' was released. Gene Simmons graces the cover of the magazine, and the entire band appears in the photos with the 'Girls of KISS,' who are all wearing KISS Makeup...and not much else!

Hard rock to country, pop to jazz, electronica to hip-hop, folk to blues, the real measure and value of music is whether it succeeds in connecting with the listener. In that way, all music that taps into that emotional vein is soul music.

In the past 40 + years, as lead singer/front man of KISS, Paul Stanley has delivered on that promise, infusing the group’s brand of anthemic, atomic powered hard rock with passion, swagger, and yes, soul.



Today would have been former KISS guitarist Mark St. John's 60th Birthday. Please take a moment to remember Mark and his great guitar playing!

Here's Mark with KISS in the "Heaven's On Fire" video.
