Jackets & Sleeves - This Friday

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.

Participants include:

John M. Bachman
Joanna Barnum
Stephen Blickenstaff
Jenny Campbell
Martin Cendreda (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea)
Nate Doyle
Alex Fine (Fight Club)
Julia Gfrorer
Kate Haberer
