Morrison Hotel Gallery at its Sunset Marquis outpost in, West Hollywood, CA, will host a celebration on Saturday, February 8, 2020 to commemorate the half-centennial of The Doors' landmark Morrison Hotel album and the esteemed fine art music photography gallery's own 20th anniversary.

Presented by Morrison Hotel Gallery and hosted by John Varvatos and Timothy White, the star-studded celebration will pay special homage to legendary photographer and gallery partner Henry Diltz. Diltz's extensive body of work encompasses such hallmarks as the album cover that gives the gallery its namesake, quintessential images from Woodstock, Monterey Pop and Laurel Canyon.

In addition to some of music history's most intimate moments Diltz has taken compelling portraits of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Joni Mitchell and Keith Richards and outstanding concert shots of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain, Diltz is a rock icon on par with his profound subjects.

The festivities will take place at West Hollywood's famed "Music Hotel", the Sunset Marquis, where sprawling indoor-outdoor spaces and state-of-the-art sound will give way to a poolside performance where honorary guests Robby Krieger of The Doors, and fellow Morrison Hotel Gallery photographer/musician Danny Clinch and his Tangiers Blues Band will be joined by very special surprise guests who will lend their talents to a star-studded Super Group for one night only.

An exhibition of rare outtakes from Diltz's impromptu Morrison Hotel session will take place within the gallery. Diltz and Krieger, will reunite for a panel discussion on the iconic images that almost didn't happen. As the story goes, photographer Henry Diltz arrived at the transient Morrison Hotel with The Doors only to be denied photographic permission by an unwitting desk clerk who, in stepping away for a few minutes, missed out on mischief that created one of the most prolific portraits in music history.
