Bob Dylan art to go on show in Germany

A collection of Bob Dylan's artworks, including variations on published drawings and sketches, is to open later this year at a museum in the eastern German city of Chemnitz.

On display in the exhibition, called "The Drawn Blank Series," will be more than 200 colored versions of pictorial motifs from a book of drawings and sketches that Dylan produced between 1989 and 1992.

The book attracted the attention of Ingrid Moessinger, a curator at the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz museum, who approached Dylan about the possibility of displaying his works.

"I was fascinated to learn of Ingrid's interest in my work, and it gave me the impetus to realize the vision I had for these drawings many years ago," Dylan said Wednesday in a statement released by the museum.

"If not for this interest, I don't know if I even would have revisited them."

The show in Chemnitz, south of Berlin, is to open on Oct. 28 and run through Feb. 3.
