Denny will speak and exhibit his own work
Forty years ago on May 31, June 1 and 2, Paul McCartney and Wings played three sold-out shows at the Chicago Stadium – the only time the band performed in Chicago.
On May 14 and 15, former Wings guitarist Denny Laine will help commemorate that famous rock show by appearing at a themed fine art show in Tinley Park and exhibiting his artwork, along with artwork by Paul and Linda McCartney.

The event is hosted by WLS-FM and Bettenhausen Automotive, and Laine said he is looking forward to it.
“I’ll get a chance to see people and talk to people about the musical time in my life,” Laine said. “And they’ll get a chance to see another side of me.”
Laine said he will exhibit the storyboards from his rock opera, “Arctic Song.” In Laine’s rock opera, an alien – disguised as a human – visits Earth to address various ecological challenges: pollution, the state of rain forests and the Inland Sea, as well as polar bears, Siberian tigers and the whale population.
“I’m not the best artist in the world, but it’s got a certain charm to it,” Laine said of his artwork. “It’s encouraging to people.”

"Beach Towels" by Paul McCartney. The Wings Over America 40th Anniversary Art Show & Sale features signed artwork by Paul McCartney, photographs from Linda McCartney and artwork from former Wings guitarist Denny Laine.

Laine said he is working on a new CD that he hopes to release later this year and is continuing to explore different art mediums.
“I just try a little of everything,” Laine said. “I’ve done things with colored pens, fine pens and fine markers – black markers and colored markers – pencil and a little bit of acrylics, oil and watercolors.”
