Poster Show Opens Up To Public

April 30, 2012 by  

On May 11th, the Station Museum of Contemporary Art and the Free Press Houston are holding the “Free Press Summer Fest Poster Show” from 7:00 to 11:00 PM. The show is open to everyone, and it showcases the work of many artists, and illustrates how their work has been influenced by their subjects – in this case, musicians from a diversity of backgrounds including indie, alternative rock, hip hop and country. This year marks the fourth anniversary of the event, and will feature silkscreen prints of the artists slated to appear at the open air Free Press Summer Fest Concert.

The artists that will be displaying their work for everyone to see include Justin Anville, Brian Taylor, Jermaine Rogers, Michael C. Rodriguez and Shelby Hohl. It’s not just fine artists who will be attending the show – other artistic disciplines such as illustration and graphic design will also be featured. The event is the only opportunity to see the work of these artists before it is put on display at the Free Press Summer Fest concert, which takes place in Houston’s Eleanor Tinsley Park on June 2nd – 3rd. It’s likely that the artists have involved local print shops in a run of poster printing make their work available at the event, which sees The Flaming Lips, Primus, Snoop Dogg and country legend Willie Nelson headlining.

The festival is open to people of all ages, and tickets for the June event are available from the Free Press Summer Fest website.
