Sign Painters 2Jewish Museum
1109 5th Ave, New York, NY
With the advent of computer printed and die-cut signs, the beautiful hand-painted signs that used to adorn storefronts, billboards and barn signs have been on the wane. In an effort to call attention to the lost art, Faythe Levine and Sam Macon’s have put together an amazing documentary and accompanying book which provides a history of the form and gives voice to over two dozen craftsman who continue to paint today. Tonight, the film screens and is followed by a Q&A and book signing with the directors. Added bonus: free popcorn with ticket purchase.
