The "Artwork of John Lennon" exhibition, opening October 4, 2007 at Stanford Mall, is Yoko Ono's twenty year old $100 million -FRAUD-.

In 1986, some five years after John Lennon's death, Yoko Ono hired professionals to create work John Lennon might have created if he lived longer and falsely attribute it to him. Shortly thereafter, Yoko Ono found out black-and-white reproductions of John Lennon's black-and-white drawings wouldn't sell for as much or as quickly as she would like, even when misrepresented as original printmaking mediums. So, Yoko Ono had these non-disclosed reproductions subsequently, over the last twenty odd years, cut, pasted and colorized by professionals.

Obviously, without John Lennon's participation or approval because he was still -dead-.

By definition, rule of law and laws of nature, dead men don't create artwork and reproductions whether the artist is dead or alive cannot be attributed to them.

Unfortunately, for the unsuspecting public, that hasn't stopped Yoko Ono from victimizing them at the tune of $500 to $9,000 or more each in her fraudulent titled "Artwork of John Lennon" weekend touring and get out of town on Monday exhibitions.

For the public and the news media who want additional documentation to these contentious issues of authenticity, please link to the following:
