Doc on, rock poster freaks.

Another form of American art that gets overlooked is the rock poster. Like vinyl record covers, it’s an art form that has faded into the background when compared with how bands are promoted now. You either have YouTube vids or MySpace photos or 50 pixel x 50 pixel art for an iTunes single. BACK IN MY DAY, WE DIDN’T HAVE PIXELS. The contribution of the designers behind the movement are the focus of a new doc called American Artifact: The Rise of American Rock Poster Art. *holds up lighter and sways slowly while watching*
