Mickey Hart is not only the legendary drummer for The Grateful Dead, but a longtime artist.

Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart will showcase his art in Atlanta

We’ve had visits recently from Paul Stanley, Rick Allen of Def Leppard and Ric Ocasek, and now Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart will make a local appearance to exhibit his art.

Hart will debut his showcase in Atlanta as part of his North American art tour at Wentworth Gallery in Phipps Plaza from 2-4 p.m. March 24.

The longtime Dead percussionist refers to his work as Vibrational Expressionism and says it combines art with music and science.
