The Gig Poster Project is a multi-faceted arts program engaging students with their communities through music and design.
This fall, Teaching Artist Phil Parcellano and Poster Designer Johnny Sampson led a series of workshops in three Chicago secondary schools, guiding students through the process of designing a poster.
On exhibition is the culminating artwork from all three campuses. From this astounding selection of work, 18 students will be awarded a screen printing apprenticeship at Spudnik Press Cooperative. One grand prize winner will be commissioned to design and print a gig poster for Mucca Pazza “Mucca Pazza, the marching band that thinks it’s a rock ‘n roll band”. Please join us on January 24th for a hands-on printing demonstration, food, and celebration.
Please contact Vanessa Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Gallery hours are Mon-Fri 12 to 6 p.m.
