You've probably read it in some of the announcements for "Sail on, Sailor 1972", but here is the link to the official website plus a couple of pictures:

I came to LA yesterday to visit my daughter. This morning, I took the opportunity to go to the Morrison Hotel Gallery and see what their Beach Boys exhibit was all about. Itís a small place, in the lobby of a chic hotel. Two walls were devoted to photos of our guys. Youíve seen most of the pictures before, but it was nice to see that many at one time. All the prints start at $1300 and range up to $8000, depending on the size print you want, so I didnít get any souvenirs. There are limited editions of some of the prints, autographed by all five surviving group members.
The press release had mentioned ďspecial guests ď were expected at the opening, so I asked the proprietor who had showed up on Wednesday. She excitedly replied that Mike and Bruce had come and been very approachable, speaking and posing with all fans.
The gallery has a few rock history books, but no other memorabilia related to the BBs. It was a pleasant 15 minutes, but not life-changing.

Mike and Bruce at the exhibit. Also Carl's sons:

I just don't see any "rare" pictures. All of those shown in the video have been known and used for ages.

Who is that in the pic at 1.43? Guy with guitar looks like Alex Chilton.

I thought it may be Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. But it doesn't seem to have any BB conncetion
