eye+ear: recent concert poster design logo


This exhibit showcases the work of several artists and design studios from across America who have created a unique and highly individual style on the idea of music concert poster as art.

From it’s early popularity in the 1960s, promoting counter-culture scenes & sounds, the poster has evolved with it’s times, recording the aesthetic changes of every generation and musical ripple. From punk to hip hop, it is the poster artist’s challenge to create a visual “sound” that works in harmony with the music and it’s audience.


This group of prints shows a wide range of individual and artistic techniques, that have set them apart from the thousands of others hanging in coffee shops, record stores, and on light posts in every town or city.

Far from the means of photocopied flyers, these graphics often utilize screenprinting as the medium of choice. A labor intensive and unforgiving process, it is a task often carried out by the designers themselves, a DIY approach to insure that their artistic vision is uncompromised. The print quality and craftsmanship, just like the artwork, typography, and color choices, show the thought and attention to subtle detail that elevate these works to more than just advertisements.

While featuring designs for live performances by Patti Smith, Wilco, and Gomez, it is among less recognized acts as The Black Keys, Yeasayer, Andrew Bird, St. Vincent, and The Jesus Lizard, that current “gigposter” artists find a kindred, inspired muse. It is here an artist discovers a signature combination by doing what they love, for a music that they love...
