Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick Is Selling Art to Help Legalize Pot
Grace Slick Will someone please give Grace Slick a light?
And for today's Most Typically San Francisco news item, we bring you this: No, it's not a new ban on kittens. Rather, Grace Slick, singer of the famous '60s S.F. psych-rock band Jefferson Airplane, is selling new artwork tomorrow night to aid the effort to legalize marijuana.
Oh, and Slick's name for the series of art she's unveiling? It is -- we kid you not -- the 420 Collection.
Said collection includes paintings and prints made specifically for the exhibition, which will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 tomorrow night at SOMA pot dispensary Sparc. A portion of each sale will go to benefit the Marijuana Policy Project, a nonprofit that advocates for legalization of marijuana for adults. And even though the exhibit is at a pot gallery, non-medical-marijuana patients can attend -- if they RSVPto LRobinson@MPP.Org.
