You probably think of lots of things when you hear the name “Flint, Michigan” right? Rock’n’Roll and an amazing past & contemporary poster show should now be among them. Flintstock is a new music and poster show happening in Flint, MI at the Flint Institute of the Arts (FIA) on Saturday September 26, 2009 and you should totally GO check it out. Flintstock comprises of 7 legendary bands and TWO poster art shows, so it’s kind of a blowout. In fact, Paste Magazine wrote a nice little piece about the show here!
I will have 10 posters in the “Graphic Beauty: Contemporary Rock and Roll Posters” show during Flintstock, as well as posters by a rad array of contemporary working poster artists from around the US, and there is also a super retrospective on display called “Flashback: Posters from the Golden Age of Rock and Roll”, all on view at the Flint Institute of the Arts. And, to make things even crazier, Mike Budai will be on hand in person at Flintstock to sell and chat posters. Yes way! The 2 concurrent poster shows will be up for viewing from September 26th through November 8th.
