KURT COBAIN Touring Art Show In The Works

According to The Pulse Of Radio, an authorized traveling exhibition of late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain's artwork is in the works. Artist manager Jeff Jampol, who oversees the business concerns of deceased musicians, revealed to The New York Times that he's working with Cobain's widow and daughter, Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain, on a touring art show that would feature Cobain's artwork.

Jampol explained that the exhibition will feature "Kurt's works and his art and his possessions," adding, "He's got some amazing canvases that a lot of the world has never seen or even heard of." Jampol said that Cobain's work is "going to be relevant for centuries."

Love signed over the rights to Cobain's name and likeness to her daughter in 2010.

Since then, Seattle's Experience Music Project unveiled its massive "Nirvana: Taking Punk To The Masses" exhibit, which featured over 200 band-related items.

Last year, Frances Cobain was an executive producer on "Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck", the first authorized documentary about her father. The film featured never before seen and heard artwork and recordings from Kurt's personal archives.

Jampol did not give any hint of when the traveling art show would premiere.
