LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Musician, visual artist, auteur, director, provocateur and cultural icon Marilyn Manson can now add art gallery owner to his curriculum vitae. On October 31st Manson will christen a new space, "The Celebritarian Corporation Gallery Of Fine Art," with a reception featuring an exhibition of his original artwork. Already praised for several solo exhibitions of his oil paintings displayed from LA to Paris to Berlin, Manson will now curate this new Los Angeles gallery.
Following the gallery's opening ceremony Manson will perform a newly-released song "This is Halloween" on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. This marks the first time he has agreed to play a late-night show on network television, and, like anything Manson does, it is sure to be far from a typical production. The song is featured on the 2-disc soundtrack from the re-released 3D version of Tim Burton's classic The Nightmare Before Christmas.
"It will be the vampire national anthem," Manson recently told Rolling Stone.
And, last but not least, the piece de resistance of all this activity will be a new album, currently in production.
