Spring Break: Friday

I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite people from undergrad speak tonight. Dan Danger is in town for tomorrow, Friday, April 6th (one-night-only) National Poster Retrospecticus at my friend Erich’s gallery 1975. If you’re in the Rochester area you really should come out. It will only be up for one night and then it moves on to another city. 1975 Gallery is the only NY location that will host this event! It’s super easy to find to. Drive straight down East Avenue into the city. When you see the Little Theatre you’re there!

The National Poster Retrospecticus is a traveling show of more than 300 hand-printed event posters from over 75 of the best poster designers in the country. Produced and Curated by JP Boneyard.

The best part of the whole talk was the “after party” in the old illustration studios. Dan was carrying around a cumbersome looking IKEA box that doubled as a sail on the windy RIT campus. In it, he had brought around 100 of his posters. Each one held delicate layers of silkscreened goodness. Here are a few photos that I took… sadly, I was too awe-struck to take photos while we were looking through the stack!
