There’s a treat in store for fans of the Seattle-born band Pearl Jam at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
An exhibit of Pearl Jam’s classic and now-historical poster art opens today at SEA, with 85 posters made over the years by more 30 artists including the Ames Bros., Brad Klausen, Munk One, Ward Sutton, and others.
PUSH ME, PULL ME: Pearl Jam and the Art of the Screen Printed Poster shows off the work of some great artists, of course, but also illustrates how, when the band formed way back in 1990, posters were the best way to communicate with their audience.
