Xpress just learned that guest artist (and renowned NSFW doodler) Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips had to drop out for scheduling reasons, but this year’s SYNTH Art Show still sounds pretty killer.
Free and open to the public, the exhibit will feature more than a dozen of the top concert-poster artists and graphic designers from around the country, each of whom have designed and donated one-of-a-kind, hand-printed, Moog-themed posters for sale inside the Moogaplex (aka Haywood Park Hotel). What’s more, proceeds go to support the Bob Moog Foundation.
This year, local artists lending their considerable talents include: Subject Matter Studio (Xpress’ own Drew Findley), James Flames, Pfahlert Creative Labs and Sound Mind Media (Jenny Greer). Checkout the full line up here.
The gallery will be open from noon to 6 p.m., Friday-Saturday. And since only 20 prints of each poster will be for sale, get there early. Last year’s prints sold out quick as a Moogerfooger.
