Simple. This is how many attendees
described the artwork of John Lennon
at the downtown Ann Arbor Borders
last weekend. Most agreed that
Lennon's art, which consists primarily
of pen and pencil line drawings, is sim-
ple. But subtlety is sometimes the best
way to convey a strong feeling. "I find
the art simple, but there is a lot of
meaning in it if it is taken that way" said
Bob Pascoe, a Stockbridge resident.
Many did find special meaning in
Lennon's art, just as millions have heard
the powerful messages portrayed in his
This unique opportunity to view John
Lennon's art was in honor of Lennon's
61st birthday. The exhibit featured over
50 of Lennon's drawings along with 20
song manuscripts accompanied by his
music playing in the background.
On the low end, you could purchase a
limited edition song manuscript of"I'm
Losing You" from his Double Fantasy
album for $125, or for $150 you could
get "Yer Blues" off of The Beatles.
The rest of the manuscripts ranged in
price up to $6000 for a framed copy of
"In My Life." Interestingly six out of
the ten Beatles years song manuscripts
were from songs off the The Beatles (or
the White Album), which was the album
when Yoko began to sit in during the
recording sessions with the rest of the
Beatles. This created some tension
within The Beatles. In the The Beatles
Anthology book, Beatle guitarist,
George Harrison, says, "At first it was a
novelty, but after a while it became
apparent that she was always going to
be there and it was very uncomfort-
Since the exhibit was open to the
public, most came to simply see and
experience Lennon's artwork rather
than to buy. Bill Jordan, an Ann Arbor
resident, came because, "I've been a
huge fan of Lennon my entire life and

In the outskirts beyond college life on
central campus is the unique alcove
called Kerrytown. This niche of choice
that includes a farmer's produce, restau-
rants and shops has recently added a new
public treat that resonates Kerrytown's
Kerrytown Chimes, in existence for
about a year, was created after the owner,
Joe O'Neal of Kerrytown Shops, was
inspired by similar, more advanced
chimes that were open to the public in a
church in Ireland. The Kerrytown
Chimes are a set of bells in Kerrytown's
clock tower that is played by a wooden
handle keyboard. The wooden handles
are connected to the bells by clappers
that are linked to mechanical steel ropes.
Each time someone pushes down one of
the handles, the clapper rings the corre-
sponding bell. There are 17 handles cor-
responding to 17 bells and each rings a

growing up." Pascoe was there because,
"John has always been known for his
music, and I was curious to see what his
art is all about." Jordan characterized
Lennon's art as "very personal, very
humorous, showing that he was a com-
plicated man, and he treasured his rela-
tionship with Yoko."
The Bag One porfolio works were the
priciest at the exhibit and consisted of
drawings of their wedding, honeymoon,
bed-in and erotic drawings of Yoko. All
of the drawings contain some autobio-
graphical element, with the other draw-
ings ranging in subject from "Fame,"
dealing with the media spectacle of his
life, to "Baby Boy," reflecting his love
for his son.
Lennon's artwork is without question
simple, all of the drawings were black
and white with the exception of the col-
orful Real Love drawings of cartoon
animals that he made for his son Sean.

lyrics, and with a strong message."

Heather O'Neal has been opening up
the chimes and supervising the public on
their chime playing experience for about
six months now. She said that every time
someone plays the chimes, they get a
sticker that says "I played the bells at
Kerrytown." O'Neal said that she has
gone through over 500 of the stickers,
indicating a steady stream of people to
the chimes. There are hundreds of songs
to choose from and people don't need a
working knowledge of reading music.
This is because the music is numbered
from 1-17 to correspond to the handles
that are also simply numbered 1-17. Up
to three notes can be played at one time
and major and minor notes are distin-
guishable as well.
Antonia Silverio, a 7-year-old girl,
brought in her own songs that she wrote
to play on the chimes. Her favorite piece
is the "Bach Minuet" that she played as
an audience of five and others passing
applauded her performance with a smile.
With the guide of O'Neal's humming,
Antonia also went on to play the cowboy
song, "Home on the Range" and many
O'Neal also commented that the'
chimes are an instrument that are actual-
ly studied by musicians. There is a World.
Carillon Federation that includes over
200 countries that participate in playing
these instruments. Even here in Ann
Arbor, we have Associate Professor
Margo Halsted who plays the bells at the
Burton Memorial Tower on Central
Campus and the Lurie Tower on North
Campus. The chimes are also a tradition
at Cornell University played by chime
masters every year.
Kerrytown Chimes is located in the
Kerrytown shops and is open to the pub-
lic every Monday, Wednesday and
Friday from 12-12:30 p.m.
