Join AIGA Wisconsin at Hotel Foster for an evening dedicated to gig posters, the artists who create them, and the bands that inspire the art. Francisco Ramirez, Paloma Chavez and other local gig poster artists will be on-hand to display and sell their work. We will also be screening Just Like Being There, a documentary that explores the origins and current state of the gig poster revolution that premiered at last year's SXSW music festival. Scout Shannon, making his directorial debut with this film, will also be on hand to speak about his documentary. Finally, we'll wrap up the evening with a performance by popular local Milwaukee indie pop band Maritime. Be sure to mark your calendars for this gig poster show / film screening / live performance extravaganza!
