Rock & Art -- Linkin Park guitarist Mike Shinoda has an exhibit of his art at LA's Japanese American National Museum entitled Glorious Excess (Born). I didn't know too much about the singer/guitarist's art background and learned that he studied illustration at Art Center College of Design . But even though you may not have a chance to see his art in a museum setting you can view some of it on his website:
I love seeing the different artistic sides of musicians, for example:
Grace Slick
Joni Mitchell
Tony Bennett
To quote Academy Award winner (for original song "Falling Slowly" ) Glen Hansard: "Make Art!"
