Two years ago this week, PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish held its book kickoff at Revolution Hall in Troy, NY (RIP). Featuring music from The McLovins and The Flow, the long awaited arrival of PhanArt, a comprehensive collection of the art made by fans over the first 20 years of Phish was finally here. Over the course of the week we will be excerpting articles from the book that discuss the Phish community, art scene, and events throughout Phish history.
Featuring art from Ryan Kerrigan, Tripp, AJ Masthay, Jason Lees, Isadora Bullock, and dozens of other artists over the years, this 400+ page full-color coffee-table book is a walk down memory lane that is unlike any other book in that it is made up of the art of the FANS. Because of the Fans, Phish is a stronger band with a large community encompassing it.
To celebrate our 2nd year, we are offering for one week only the book at it’s original cost of $60 – this is a limited time offer and will last until Sunday night. Pick up the book while it is in it’s second printing and READ The F$%&ing Book!
All net profits from the sale of PhanArt will benefit The Mockingbird Foundation which supports music education throughout the country.
