In partnership with True North Studio, on Friday, June 21, monOrchid will welcome a one-of-a-kind photo exhibit of late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. The exhibit is titled "Celebrating the Life of Chester Bennington" and by local photographer/musician Jim Louvau.

This is the first time this exhibit will be displayed in Phoenix and only the second place the entire collection has been shown. Louvau had a completely sold out show in California—where Bennington lived. Louvau was a friend of Bennington, a Phoenix native, before the singer tragically took his life on July 20, 2017. The exhibit will honor the late Linkin Park singer through a series of photographs they created together over the years. Louvau captured the rock n' roll legend on and off the stage, and for the first time fans can experience these iconic images in Bennington's hometown of Phoenix.

A portion of the proceeds of the exhibit will benefit 320 Change Direction, a charity co-founded by Bennington's wife that brings awareness to mental health. Tickets to the event are $35 and on sale now at eventbrite.com/e/opening-celebrating-the-life-of-chester-bennington-by-jim-louvau-tickets-61273526768.

The event takes place on Friday, June 21, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at monOrchid located in the heart of the Roosevelt Row Arts District in Downtown Phoenix at 214 East Roosevelt Street.
