The Art of Lettering: Sign Painting
Works on view in Barry McGee prompted us to consider the lost tradition of handcrafted sign painting.
In this unique ICA workshop, presented in collaboration with Josh Luke and Meredith Kasabian, co-founders of Boston’s Best Dressed Signs and the Pre-Vinylite Society—as seen in Wired Magazine, the New York Times, and the 2013 documentary Sign Painters—Josh Luke will demonstrate the tools of the trade, leading participants in a hands-on activity. Join Meredith Kasabian at 2:00 PM in the Barry McGee exhibition for a public gallery talk about the artist and related works of art.
A limited number of full scholarships are available for BPS teachers with advanced registration. For more information, contact Leah Kandel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-478-3136.
An additional hour is added to the workshop for interested educators, from 12:15 PM to 1:15 PM.
Workshop participants receive a 10% discount at the Water Café on the day of the program. Excludes alcoholic beverages.
