AIGA Reno/Tahoe, the professional association for design, is hosting an evening filled with music, posters and a screening of the documentary, “Just Like Being There” on Thursday, August 28, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at Lincoln Lounge.
The event will also feature screen printer and poster designer, Lil Tuffy and the owner of Rock City Posters, Scotty Roller.
The documentary, “Just Like Being There” made its debut at the 2012 South by Southwest conference (SXSW) and tells the story about the history and rise of gig posters. The film takes an intimate look into the artists behind them and the cultural impact of the once under-appreciated art form.
