Webb, a familiar figure in the neighborhood during his long tenure as the manager and buyer at Trash & Vaudeville and later as the owner of the boutique I Need More, died of cancer on April 14, 2020. He was 62.
Starting tomorrow, the Morrison Hotel Gallery unveils a week-long exhibit of Jimmy's rock photos in an estate sale to benefit Road Recovery, a nonprofit helping young people battle addiction and other adversities.
Here's more via the Morrison Hotel Gallery:
A punk icon on par with those he called collaborators and companions, the late-great Jimmy Webb is a New York City institution whose personal collection of music photography rivals our own.
As such, it is only fitting that we continue to honor the legacy of this rock & roll guardian angel with a special estate sale of these works in collaboration with Road Recovery...Outfitted in personal affects of rosary beads and feather boas, this historic collection which first made its MHG debut last December sees a long-awaited, in-person unveiling...
The exhibition is open for viewing from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with hours on Sunday starting at noon. The Morrison Hotel Gallery is at 116 Prince St. between Greene and Wooster.
