The 2005-2006 “Taken by Storm” US tour of the art of Storm Thorgerson will officially kick off on May 12, 2005, at Chicago’s Inspire Fine Art. Thorgerson, who designed some of the most iconic album covers in rock history, such as Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, created the covers for The Cranberries’ Bury the Hatchet, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee and Beneath the Skin: Live in Paris.
The US tour will be a continuation of the premiere exhibition in London that took place on September 21, 2004.
The Chicago exhibit will run from May 6th – June 5th, with the official opening night on May 12th. There will also be an “Experience the Storm” event on May 13th, and a fan club night on the 20th.
For those on the west coast, the “Taken by Storm” exhibit will be moving to Los Angeles (Glendale), CA, from July 31st – October 9th. The exhibit will be part of the larger “Art in Music” exhibition at the Forest Lawn Museum.
