KISS photo exhibit opens in Hollywood

A new KISS photo exhibit opened at the Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Hollywood on Saturday.

“The Legacy Of KISS” presents a career-spanning collection of images alongside the debut of first edition pieces from the KISS + UKIYO-E Project, which showcases the traditional Japanese art.

The multi-colored wood block prints are first edition prints and limited to only 200. The KISS Ukiyo-e project started in fall of 2014 and is presenting these pieces of fine art for the first time, ever, as part of this exhibit.

KISS founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons were on hand for the opening, and were joined by a host of fellow rockers including Alice Cooper, members of Anthrax, DJ Ashba of Sixx:AM and Brandon Boyd from Incubus, among others.

“The Legacy Of KISS” exhibit is open to the public through February 17.

KISS performed a rare unmasked and unplugged concert at the Badlands in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on February 11.

The group currently have a handful of live dates scheduled this year, with shows starting in late April.

The band’s latest studio album is 2012’s “Monster.”

As part of the recent 2015 hennemusic Rock News Awards, KISS delivered the No. 1 Rock News Story Of The Year and were named the No. 4 Rock News Artist Of The Year.
