Ringo Starr is having an art show in Boston this week

...And wrapping it up with a concert.

WZLX &The Citi Wang Theatre

If you didn’t get the chance to see legendary musician Ringo Starr during The Beatles’ heyday—or at a Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band show—you can catch him in Boston this week. For free.

Turns out Starr’s creative talents extend well beyond music. He’ll be showcasing his art at the Citi Wang Theatre from Wednesday, October 21 through Friday, October 23.

You can purchase original, hand-signed pieces at the art show, and all proceeds will benefit Starr’s Lotus Foundation, which helps multiple charitable projects.

“I think I’ve got three parts of my brain,’’ he told The Boston Globe.

“I am a musician. Whatever else I do, I am a drummer; that’s my main joy and passion. And then I’ve got lots of time around that. So I’ve got the computer art, and I actually paint with brushes, and that’s just for myself, and I’m still taking photographs. Some days I can do a lot of just sitting around — I’m good at that too. I just like something creative going on.’’

To wrap up his stop in Boston, Starr will play a show with his All Star Band at the Wang Theatre Friday night.
