Entitled "Flights of Fancy," the exhibition will feature the works of Dolenz as well as Muhammad Ali, Ultra Violet, Blair Underwood and Candice Bergen. Baird Jones will be the curator of the exhibit, which runs Aug. 27-Sept. 18. Micky Dolenz was one of the stars of the sixties TV show "The Monkees," about a rock-and-roll band. The group sold over 65 million records, and their albums included "The Monkees," "More of the Monkees," "Headquarters" and "Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones, Ltd." Dolenz also starred in the West End musical The Point and later became a producer-director for the BBC and London Weekend Television. In 1996 the Monkees reunited for a 30 year summer tour around the U.S., and Dolenz also directed the hit TV show "Boy Meets World." His other theatre credits include Grease, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Tom Sawyer.
