Rock and roll royalty were at Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood last night.
In celebration of Grammy week, Morrison Hotel Gallery honored KISS with a career-spanning photographic exhibit, “The Legacy Of Kiss”, and debut the first edition pieces from the KISS + UKIYO-E Project.
KISS founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were on hand for the opening. Surrounded by a huge crowd of media and fans, the rock and roll icons posed for pictures, letting their swagger hang out. Snapped with the rock legends was Morrison Hotel Gallery co-owners and iconic photographers Timothy White and Henry Diltz.
Some very famous faces were spotted in the crowd of fans and friends. Alice Cooper, members of ANTHRAX, D.J. Ashba of SIXX: A.M. and many other well-known faces, were there to support KISS and the opening of this very special exhibit at Morrison Hotel Gallery.

Guests admired the celebrated images that are a part of the KISS exhibit, taken by photographers that have shaped the careers of many artists, and have become pop culture legends in their own right. They include Bob Gruen, Danny Clinch, Lynn Goldsmith, Neal Preston, Norman Seeff, Patrick Harbron and Travis Shinn.
The exhibit will also include the debut of the KISS + UKIYO-E Project which showcases the traditional Japanese art. These unique and stunning multi-colored wood block prints, are first-edition prints and limited to only 200. This KISS + UKIYO-E Project started in fall of 2014 and has culminated in these wonderful pieces of fine art that will be on display for the first time, ever, as part of this exhibit.
The exhibit is open to the public and will be up through February 17. All photographs in the exhibit, as well as many other KISS photographs are available for purchase at Morrison Hotel Gallery and at www.morrisonhotelgallery.com.
