From our friends at PhanArt:
FIRST TUBE Poster show to be held Saturday, June 16th during Phish’s three-night run at Bader Field in Atlantic City
The poster show will feature the best Phish inspired art, including limited edition art made specifically for the show. Admission is FREE for all and runs from 11am-4pm.
‘First Tube’, a poster show featuring Phish artists from around the country will be held on Saturday June 16th from 11am-4pm at the Trump Plaza Hotel, Westminster Room, on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Developed and produced by a group of artists and fans known as theMothership Art Collective, this poster show will be held in the middle of a weekend of Phish, who play nearby Bader Field June 15-17th.
Phish poster shows have been held over the years with great success, as unique posters made for the Phish shows that weekend and stop on the tour feature some of the best concert art being produced today. ‘First Tube’ is the first event for 2012 produced by the Mothership Art Collective, a group within the Phish community, comprised of artists and organizations who promote the art inspired by the band Phish. The eclectic artists featured at this event show the broad scope of Phish related art and capture the inspiration of the band in their art. The creative fan base that Phish has makes for amazing art inspired by the band, the locales and the music. The collective will work hard to bring a show to the Phish touring public each year.
In keeping with the great tradition and success of past poster shows, First Tube will offer free entry to all patrons, tubes available for purchase, charitable donations from the event made to the Mockingbird Foundation and a wide array of artists with posters to fit any budget. Artists will be announced the first week of May and special edition works, only available at the show, will be available for viewing shortly thereafter atwww.mothershipartcollective.org
