A new photo exhibit commemorating the life of late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington will take place at the Black Sheep Gallery in Burbank, California on March 20th, on what would have been Bennington’s 43rd birthday.

Following a private reception for friends and family from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the exhibit will open to the public until 10:00 p.m. It will feature never-before-seen photos captured by artist and Bennington’s close friend Jim Louvau.

Louvau said, “Over the course of our 17-year friendship, I was lucky enough to document the evolution of the young musician who never took himself too seriously into the family man and philanthropist he developed into. Now it’s time to honor the memory of someone who I owe a great deal of gratitude by sharing the art we created together with the world and continue to celebrate his legacy on his birthday.”

A limited amount of tickets for the event are on sale now for $25, with a portion of proceeds being donated to Bennington’s widow Talinda‘s charity for suicide prevention, 320 Changes Direction. Chester was found dead in his Los Angeles-area home in July 2017 after hanging himself.

FAST FACTS: 

  • Linkin Park headlined an all-star tribute concert for Bennington in October 2017 in Los Angeles but has not announced any future plans for recording or touring.
  • Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda released a solo album earlier this year called Post Traumatic.
  • 320 Changes Direction is a coalition of concerned citizens, non-profit leaders, and leaders from the private sector who have come together to change the culture in America about mental health, mental illness, and wellness.
