This just in:

Caroline Collective is seeking rock poster art from the Houston music community over the past 10 years. This show will showcase the trends and diversity of rock poster art in Houston over the first decade of the new century. All mediums of rock poster art (wheat paste, digital offset prints, silkscreens, photocopies, handmade) are welcome and encouraged for submission. All of the work included in this show must be for Houston rock shows occurring between 2000 and 2010.

Houston’s musical landscape has been dominated by acts that defy genre classification, innovating outside of national trends, stamping their own mark on the aural template of the city. The collection of these talents has resulted in a vibrant and artistically supportive musical community known for presenting new forms of expression combining disparate genres and styles. Evolving in step with this music and drawing from its creative innovation is Houston’s ground breaking poster culture. Some of the world’s most renowned rock poster designers call Houston their home, pushing the evolution of the art form itself, locally and internationally. In this exhibit we seek to provide a snapshot of the last decade of rock poster art in Houston covering everything from black and white photocopied collages to the loud mockups by Uncle Charlie.

Submissions in the form of image files may be made via email to Philip Beck and Matthew Wettergreen at mwettergreen[at]gmail.com and pfbeck[at]gmail.com.
