SCREENING: Sign Painters

presented at The Guild Cinema

516 ARTS and The Guild Cinema are teaming up to present two special screenings of Sign Painters, directed by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon.  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.  But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of 'quicker' and 'cheaper'.  The resulting 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.

Tickets: all seats $5 at the door
