Sign Painters Screening Fundraiser

Sign painters
Friday, November 14, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Come join us at the Wellington campus of Massey University, in the Creative Arts building Te Ara Hihiko. This unique screening in New Zealand, made possible through the SEGD and Massey University, is a fundraiser for a 2015 design expedition to Chicago for a group of Massey students.

Sign Painters celebrates the hand-painted sign industry, an American tradition. This documentary explores a fascinating insight into a a highly specialised underground trade, emphasising an appreciation for a balance between art and commerce. Directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, the film stylistically explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country including Ira Coyne, Bob Dewhurst, Keith Knecht, Norma Jeane Maloney and Stephen Powers.

Only 100 tickets are available for purchase, and they are available here:

We will see you there!
