This just in from the folks at House Industries:
Fanatical Mechanical: Photo-Lettering and the Paste-Up Era, a new exhibition opening February 6 at Chapman University’s Guggenheim Gallery (Feb. 6 through March 9, 2012) displays mechanical-era graphic artifacts with their modern iterations and deftly demonstrates the relevance of traditional graphic arts techniques in a contemporary context. By adroitly juxtaposing traditional materials and processes with contemporary applications, Fanatical Mechanical is less a history lesson and more a lesson of how to learn from history.Opening: Feb. 6, 2012, 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Opening Lecture: Rich Roat of House Industries, Feb. 6, 2012, 6:00 p.m. Chapman University Guggenheim Gallery, Orange, California.
