Paper, Pigment & Rock Performances featuring Nels Jacobson

Arthaus Projects announces the opening of “Paper, Pigment & Rock Performances” a new exhibition showcasing the work of Nels Jacobson. Gig posters have played a part in the promotion of rock music for about as long as rock and roll has been around and their importance is not limited to advertising. Since at least the 1960s rock posters, quite apart from the performances that spawned them, have been revered and collected as valuable in their own right—because a powerful gig poster is capable of more than simply publicizing an upcoming concert. It can take on a life of its own as a singular piece of art or an iconic commemorative trophy.

  • When: June 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. to Saturday, June 29
  • Where: 140 W. Fourth St., Williamsport
  • Cost: Free
