This Friday, October 7, from 7PM - 9PM we will be having a one night only art opening, called Jackets and Sleeves.
What began as us wondering why it is that record are forever tied to a cover image while books over the years frequently get new covers turned into the idea for this art show.
We compiled a list of some of our favorite, iconic records and books and asked a group of artists to create a new book jacket or record sleeve.
The results, about 25 pieces in all, will be on display Friday night.
John M. Bachman
Martin Cendreda (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea)
Alex Fine (Fight Club)
Pat Moriarity (The Ramones)
Sara Tomko (Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas)
Noah Van Sciver
Zach Hazard Vaupen
It's also First Fridays in Hampden.
We'll blog more pieces from the exhibit all this week.
