New from PhanArt in 2011 is our weekly Friday Feature: This Week in PhanArt History. Each piece of art we share is from days of Phish in the past, typically from the 1.0 and 2.0 eras, something of note that fans of all ages can appreciate that is featured in the book PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish, with some commentary on the piece by PhanArt Pete.
This poster was made by Cape Cod area artist Geoffe Stucke for the hiatus-ending shows in January of 2003 in Hampton, Virginia. Taking into account multiple aspects of the weekend, Geoffe created 10 x 23 poster in the style of a ticket stub, replete with the indented edges from those machines that spit out the tickets at the movie theater. Hampton Coliseum is represented in a unique way, with an atom and/or the universe behind his take on the facade. A play button is located in the O of Hampton, noting that it was time to play. Yet there is no reference to the band playing, a creative effort made by many artists to avoid using the word ‘Phish‘ and falling into legal issues as a result.
