A permanent exhibition celebrating the post-Beatles career of Sir Paul opened today in Liverpool's Beatles Story Museum at Albert Dock. "The Solo Years - Paul McCartney", created by students from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA), features information on Sir Paul's solo music as well as his work with his band Wings. His paintings and poetry are also displayed. Models of Sir Paul's boyhood home, the Liverpool skyline and LIPA building are all exhibited on a floor based on a McCartney painting called "Home Territory". According to the designer of the exhibition, LIPA graduate Morgan Large:"The idea is that people feel as though they are flying over a map of Paul's life, with important parts highlighted. I feel really honored that my design was chosen and it's good to know that something I created will be on permanent display in the city."The Beatles Story Museum already contains an exhibition focusing on the solo work of John Lennon. Plans are in the works to also add exhibitions about the post-Beatles careers of George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
