When: Sun., Feb. 25, 2 p.m. 2018
Behind every great rock show is a great frontman or woman — and, thanks to artists like the late Gary Grimshaw, a poster. You’ve likely seen his acid-drenched, technicolor style promoting the likes of MC5 or Cream. An activist and graphic artist, Grimshaw, who died in 2014, would have been 72 this year. More than a posthumous birthday party, “Happy Birthday, Gary Grimshaw” is a celebration of his life’s work and his work’s impact. A slideshow presentation of his work will be presented as well as discussions lead by his widow Laura Grimshaw and fellow poster artist Mark Arminski. There will be family, cake, and special guests, and the Gary Grimshaw Memorial Series of Silkscreen prints will be on full display.
