If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you are well aware of the growing recognition and reporting about 1960’s Concert posters within mainstream society. I would like to highly recommend a documentary that came out in 2009 but is even more relevant today than ever. This is “American Artifact – The Rise of American Rock Poster Art.
This documentary is really well produced and highly informative and entertaining. The film traces this incredible art from it’s birth in the 1960’s, right up to the present day. Literally dozens of artists are interviewed, and you get a wonderful sense of “being there back in the day”. Of course, the artwork is truly breathtaking as well.
I have repeated ad nauseam, that if you expect to have any success in a collectible area, you MUST invest the time and money to acquire all the relevant information available. This DVD, available at Amazon for a little over 10 bucks, is no exception. Order it right now, while it’s fresh in your mind—

The exhibit will then make stops in Chicago, Cleveland, and New York, dates to be announced. This is one exhibit you don’t ant to miss! Here’s a link to the story:
