WSU Shaw Gallery & Utah Film Center presents "Sign...

Presented by Peery's Egyptian Theater at Peery's Egyptian Theater

Directed by Faythe Levine

Not Rated | 90 min | 2013 | USA

There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. Today, the proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. Sign Painters is a history of the craft and features the stories of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States.

There will be a post-film discussion with Film Director Faythe Levine. Check out the film trailer at http://vimeo.com/61006621
