May 16 – Castles in the Sky Studio Ghibli art exhibit

To help celebrate the upcoming Studio Ghibli retrospective at the NW Film Center (1219 SW PARK AVE), I helped curate a series of movie posters by local artists for each of the films that will be showing in May. As the posters started arriving we realized that they were too incredible not to do an art exhibit. On May 16th we will display the original artwork (where available) and high quality prints of the poster art. Many of the artists will be in attendance to celebrate all things wonderful and Ghibli.

Artwork will be on display until May 31st.

  1. I wish I was in town for this!

    Will you be making these prints available in the online store, and/or posting jpegs on your site? I’ll be crossing my fingers …
