Event Description

Co-presented with AIGASF

Before the age of computers and vinyl printers, sign painters worked by hand to illustrate storefronts, billboards and banners. Local craftsmen often developed a signature style that could distinguish a neighborhood, or even a city. But technology made creating signs less expensive — and less expressive. Sign Painters focuses on dozens of artists who are keeping the art alive.

Sign Painters (2013), 80 mins
Written and directed by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon

The evening will also include a short Sign Painter: Profile of Jeff Canham (2013), directed by Christopher Simmons. Running time: 3 mins.
