Beastie Boys fans take note, Hold Up Art will hold an exhibit of the photography of Sunny Bak called "Boys and Dogs" which is set to premiere on October 8, 2011 at 7:00 pm.

Here is the official word: Her photos of the Beastie Boys and the "Licensed to Ill" tour solidified Sunny's place as a serious rock and celebrity photographer. Simultaneously, her love of animals, especially dogs, led to the creation of the best selling People Magazine parody, Pupple. These two diverse collections of images represent the work that have defined Sunny's career.

"It's been 25 years since I looked at the images I shot of the Beastie Boys in NYC with Garrett Simmons when we were working on a book called Pupple," says Sunny Bak of this new exhibition. "This show is part retrospective and part looking toward the future as Garrett and I are working on a follow up to the original Pupple. It's an homage to the beasty in all of us."

Photographing celebrities since high school, Sunny has shot celebrities like Madonna, 10,000 Maniacs, Gregory Peck, Keanu Reeves, Seth Green, and Carol Alt. She spent time on the road with the up-and-coming The Beastie Boys on their 1986 "Licensed to Ill" tour. Sunny shot the iconic images that were featured in the multi-platinum album's artwork. more info
