30 Year Commemoration at the Bob Marley Museum

Thirty years later, Robert Nesta Marley lives on.

I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
And then Georgie would make the fire light
Log wood burnin' through the night
Then we would cook corn meal porridge
Of which I'll share with you…

On May 11, 2011, I had the privilege of photographing Georgie at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica. This day marked the 30th Anniversary Commemoration for Bob Marley.

The Museum was buzzing with TV and radio broadcasters covering this heartfelt event. A Mento band sang Marley songs near the steps of the museum.

Marley has made a great contribution to the world lyrically through his revolutionary spirit and proverbial wisdom.

His sons, Ziggy, Stephen, Damian, Ky-Mani & Julian have successful musical careers and daughter Cedella has her ‘Catch a Fire’ clothing line.

Marley’s philosophies continue to rings around the world and remain the inspiration  for redemption and revolution.

I wish I could have seen this in person! Bob Marley has influenced the entire world with his music, which will live on to be rediscovered by more and more generations to come. His work has affected my life and my art so much. I paid tribute to him with a surreal and psychedelic portrait inspired by his words. You can see it on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/05/in-memoriam-bob-marley.html
