The Rock Poster Society (TRPS) is pleased to announce the rock poster art event of the summer. TRPS is teaming up with the American Poster Institute to present Flatstock 25 – By the Bay on Saturday July 10, 2010 at the Hall of Flowers in San Francisco’s beautiful Golden Gate Park. The show will run from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The FLATSTOCK poster show series is presented by the American Poster Institute (API). It is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today. The Flatstock shows in Austin, Seattle, Chicago, and Hamburg are known worldwide as premier events in the poster world. The very first Flatstock was held in San Francisco back in the nineties, and they’ve long wanted to come back out here for their landmark 25th show.
TRPS’ Rock Art By the Bay artists show has been a regular happening every summer for some years now. Melded with the Flatstock event, this will be a very special show. TRPS is thrilled to be working with API to bring this landmark event to San Francisco.
In keeping with Flatstock and Rock Art By the Bay tradition, this show will be artists-only, and admission is FREE to the public. We’re expecting an outstanding lineup of artists for this one, and this is a great opportunity for us to introduce a lot of new faces to the Bay Area poster community. Mark down the date Saturday July 10, 2010 on your calendars. You won’t want to miss this one! I hope to see you there!
