About The Fine Art Of Rock Tour
This "One Of A Kind" touring exhibition will include album art masterpieces and iconic images created by the awe inspiring team of illustrators, painters, photographers, calligraphers, and writers who worked for, with and alongside Ernie at Pacific Eye and Ear.
PacificEyeandEar.com is an enterprise founded by Ernie Cefalu to market and sell a wide selection of limited editions of classic art works and high quality, authorized music memorabilia products of the iconic art and artifacts from Ernie’s rare collection of original album cover art and packaging.
Mr. Cefalu is the owner of all of the images and artifacts in his collection of 3,000 pieces. He is the designer of the original ‘lips and tongue’ Rolling Stones’ logo, the images and package for “Jesus Christ Superstar”. In 1972, Ernie founded the legendary Pacific Eye and Ear agency and was the creative director.
Pacific Eye and Ear became the premiere source of album design concepts, imagery, lettering, logo and packaging from 1972 to 1986. This is a period of time we call “the golden age of album cover art and packaging.” In our new enterprise, Ernie is the chief creative officer, oversees all of the art direction for the site and exhibitions.
All promotional products artwork and framing business functions will be operating through Hornbook Inc as the exclusive merchandise supplier for Ernie Cefalu’s art collection. They will manage the manufacturing and quality control of all the PacificEyeandEar.com labeled products.
From solo prints, large framed pieces, woven tapestries, branded apparel, publications, and lifestyle licensing. And Hornbook also functions as a licensing agent and as the archivist of Ernie’s collection.
We at Hornbook are currently curating and developing three large touring exhibitions featuring over 75 original pieces each of the music-related and themed imagery from Ernie’s Pacific Eye and Ear (PE&E) collection.
There is no other agency that even approach the sheer volume of creative work performed at PE&E; nor the quantity and quality of notable projects that were delivered at an unprecedented rate, nor the depth and breadth of staff artisans that apprenticed and became masters of their crafts at Pacific Eye and Ear (PE&E).
PacificEyeandEar.com is a celebration of a very unique period in America, it is a way for people to connect with the art and music that helped define the times, and we’re delivering the art of that golden age.
