The Ringo Starr Fine Art Show will also feature a collection of hand signed pieces from John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison. This will be the largest collection of signed Beatles artwork ever assembled as The Ringo Starr Fine Art Show reunites the Beatles in art form. This gives art goers the chance to own signed art pieces from all four of the Beatles.
Speaking about his art work Ringo said, "I started in the late nineties with my computer art. While I was touring it gave me something to do in all those crazy hotels you have to stay in on the road." Adding, with his trademark wit, "most of the titles for my pieces arrived because on computer you have to call them something, so I have. The easy way to look at it is, if it has a hat on - it will probably be called Hat Man."
In addition to the fine art work, there will be never before seen videos from Ringo talking about his art as well as live music. To get a preview of Ringo's art, check out http://www.RingoStarrArt.com for full details on the show.

The Shelter is staffed by 150 volunteer students per week and provides food, housing and a warm social environment.
