Prints and Pints: The Art of Drinking
Year two of Prints and Pints is coming up! Come check out a fusion of art and alcohol on August 17th. A curated group of prominent Columbus artists have created 15 unique gig posters for select Columbus area breweries.
Part art show and part beer tasting, this show will be all the good parts of a gallery show (accessible art, booze) without any of the snooty or pretentious stuff. The art is screen printed at Upright Press on 18”x 24” posters and presented at The Daily Growler in German Village. Each limited edition print will sell for a mere $20. The event will run all day, from noon to 9pm. At 8pm local Riso printing company Clatter Press will announce the best in show at 8pm.
Attendees will be able to view the art and meet the artists, as well as purchase the beers represented in the works. The prints will have a small run of only 30 prints per piece. Each poster will be signed and numbered by the artist, and for sale for $20 each until they are gone. With the reasonable price and limited quantities the posters are expected to sell out by the end of the evening.
While the event is totally free to attend, there will be a limited number or early entry tickets sold. Early entry is $30 and gets you in an hour early (11am) and includes one poster (of your choice) and one beer (of your choice). Can be purchased online while supplies last: s.tdgi.us/p&p2
The work will remain on display for 1 month, but they will only be for sale the day of the event.
Last year’s event was a huge success, many of the posters selling out and a line out the door before the doors opened at noon. Sneak peeks of the art and info on the event will be available on Upright Press & The Daily Growler social media outlets instagram (@uprightpress + @thedailygrowler) and facebook (facebook.com/uprightpress + /tdg.gvbd). #dailyprintsandpints will be used for all
poster images relating to the event.
We hope you can join us on August 17th from 12-9pm for the event. The event will be held at the German Village-Brewery District Daily Growler Location, 702 S High St, Columbus, OH 43206.
