The 68-year-old body of rock legend Iggy Pop became the art subject for a group of 21 artists that got together at the New York Academy of Art. The more-than-lucky participants represent New York’s diverse community in terms of background, gender, and age spanning undergraduate students, practicing artists, and retirees.

Conceived by British artist Jeremy Deller and led by artist and drawing professor Michael Grimaldi, this exercise will be shown at a Brooklyn Museum exhibition in the fall of 2016. (Source)
