After their show in Cologne on November 13th, 2010, metal legends The Scorpions received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Hard Rock Cafe Cologne.
The award is a portrait of Jimi Hendrix, in fact, the largest Jimi Hendrix painting in the world. The artwork was designed and manufactured by a group of art students in Prague, lead by Professor Petr Vrana. The acrylic on canvas piece is 14 m x 8m and was the featured piece of art at the Woodstock Art Retrospective which took place in 1999 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original Woodstock festival. Check it out, hanging up. It’s huge:
[more]The Scorpions signed the picture at Hard Rock Cafe Cologne and donated it to the Cafe. Hard Rock Cafe Cologne is now auctioning this unique piece of art and the proceeds will go to Hard Rock’s IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign against childhood hunger and poverty. You can help Hard Rock raise money for IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER, the campaign to help end childhood hunger and poverty.
