American Artifact: The Rise of American Rock Poster Art

Concert Poster Movies and Art Shows

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—

This summer we urged you to see the Bill Graham exhibit at the Skirball Museum in Los Angeles, Ca. Many of our readers took our advise and the reviews we received were unanimously excellent.

Great News!

It has just been officially announced that the exhibit will move to the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco from March 10- June 12, 2016. 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:

Concert Posters Make National Headlines Again!

Last week the national media once again spotlighted the exploding market for Vintage Concert Posters with the news that a new feature documentary film, American Artifact: The Rise of American Rock Poster Art has just been released. The article was one third of a full page with several large, full color photos. This news comes right on the heals of the major Denver Art Museum exhibit, and will be followed with intense media coverage this summer of the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock.

In other news, CBS Marketwatch last week featured an article on the intense interest in alternative investments. Savvy players are placing their assets into tangible collectibles that cannot fall in half overnight and should increase along with the rate of inflation. You can read that article here:
