We are very pleased to announce that for 2022, the Haight Street Art Center will be joining TRPS at the Festival of Rock Posters. In fact, thanks to HSAC, our annual show has expanded into the courtyard between the main gate and the Hall of Flowers itself. This extra space has allowed us to include more artists than we had room for in the Hall, which means Norman Orr, Mari Tepper, David D’Andrea, Arik Roper, and the great Jim Phillips will all be at our show. In addition, and thanks again to the extra space HSAC has provided, the courtyard will also feature representatives from Conscious Alliance, ExpressoBeans, and a display of Rick Griffin bronzes, the latter courtesy of The Chambers Project.
Naturally, because this is the Haight Street Art Center, the courtyard will also be the place for live screen-printing demos, which this year will be focused on the work of the youth outreach and after-school program EduSkate, which uses the creativity and unifying power of skateboarding to develop and facilitate meaningful and transformative experiences for children and youth. Just as naturally, that’s where Jim Phillips comes in—as the progenitor of skateboard art, Phillips as an obvious hero to many of the kids and young people participating in EduSkate. Some of those EduSkate participants will be on hand to help pull posters that they’ve designed and that are inspired by Phillips’ work.
See you at the show!
