''Don Ed Hardy: 2,000+12''
Tattoo artist and painter Don Ed Hardy celebrated the dawn of the new millennium by creating a unique piece of art, the painted scroll 2,000 Dragons. The piece, now on display as part of ''Don Ed Hardy: 2,000 Dragons + 12'' at DiverseWorks, measures more than half a football field in length and features 2,000 painted dragons. Most of the creatures are done in the traditional ornate Asian style, but the scroll also features elements of nature such as a rolling sea, clouds and a setting sun, along with household objects such as a chair and a teapot. Some of these are painted in a more abstract style.
The exhibit includes 12 new dragon paintings, each measuring three by four feet, which celebrate each month of 2012, the first year of the dragon since the turn of the century. Noon to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. Through July 8. 1117 East Freeway. For information, call 713‑223-8346 or visit www.diverseworks.org.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 9. Continues through July 7, 2012
