Beastie Boys' MCA Honored in Art: Watch the Animated Video

Set of 35 prints each representing a different Beastie song

Marc Hogan

As the anniversary of MCA's passing approaches next month, tributes to the late Beastie Boys member will probably be everywhere. Ego Trip points to an animated tribute to Adam Yauch by artist James Curran. The video coincides with an art show at a yet-to-be-announced London venue that will take place May 4 and 5. According to the artist, 35 prints will be shown (and offered for sale) at the event, each representing a different Beastie Boys song. Curran says the money will go to benefit cancer patients. More information and images are on a Tumblr for the project, fittingly called "One Year and a Day." See how many track references you can spot above.
