For us, summer time means a lot of things, and one of them is what we like to call “carny season”. Yep. That’s right, I just called us carnies. We do a lot of craft shows and poster shows, aka Flatstocks all through the spring & summer and travel around the country to participate in them. And? We love it.
One of our favorite shows is coming up this weekend, hooray! It’s the Chicago Flatstock 26, which happens during the super dupes Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park, smack in the middle of Chicago. We’ll be there showing a giant new crop of posters and Test Prints as well as art prints and more. So please say hello when you drop by Flatstock! We love meeting new folks at shows, big time.
Pitchfork Fest’s line up is seriously kickass this year, and even cooler, Flatstock 26 Chicago is 3 days long now too running from Friday July 16th through Sunday July 18th. While the Flatstock Poster Show is free and wide open to the tens of thousands of Pitchfork Festival attendees, you do need a ticket to attend Pitchfork Fest.
AND! If you are going to be at Pitchfork, don’t forget to enter this FREE CONTEST to win a huge stack of posters from your favorite poster artists! For more info & to enter to win, simply click here! *Winner must be present to claim their prize.*
The Flatstock Poster Show series is presented by the American Poster Institute (API), of which all Flatstock artists are members. Flatstock is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today. Most posters and the rock poster artists who show at Flatstocks are working in the silkscreen mediums, often using hand printed techniques and are working for current bands and musical artists.
