Retro Lot Poster Series From Star City Art Workshop

Star City Art Workshop is a partnership that was founded in the spring of 2017 as a bit of a courting gesture between two artists. Describing what each brings would take too long so let’s just say there is one hell of a synergy when you cross an artist with an outlaw, a nurturer with an activist, a dreamer with a lover. These prints are born out of a basement in Star City, West Virginia.

This entire series featured below is available on eBay.

This print was inspired by ACDC Bag and other visual imagery that feels Phishy  Its creators enjoy expanding the visual language associated with the band, and sometimes reach out there to push that. This one has direct lyrical references as well. The feel is edgy, and the time within which this was created was pretty darn edgy, and still is socially and politically. Feel the parallels between the narratives in the early Phish lyrics and the story we are all living in history together. There are references here of great tension and decisiveness, consequence, reality of mythic proportions. And that is where this print operates from. Colors: burnt sienna red and green/yellow smearprint and green.

Many of these prints have a story to tell. The imagery is venue-inspired with the Georgia Peach.

“Amy’s Farm 1991″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Yellow and brown on madero beach speckletone. Run of 25.

Amy’s Farm was the first in a series of nine throwback prints for early shows, now referred to as the “Phish 1.0” era.

“Sugarbush 1995″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Red, green, yellow and peacock on madero beach speckletone. Run of 12.
“UNH, Durham, NH 1994″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Blue on madero beach speckletone. Run of 11.

This print features UNH school colors and reference to the theatrics of trampoline jumping on stage. Phish are a beautiful embodiment of theatrical-artist-type musicians and youthfulness. So playful in spirit even when paired with all the intellectual brilliance. There is a reference also to holes here. And just a letting go.

“The Colonial, Keene, NH 1992″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Flamingo pink and forest green on madero beach speckletone. Run of 12.
“Cumberland County Civic Center, December 1995″, 12.5 x 19” on 100lb French Paper. Peacock and silver on madero beach speckletone. Run of 7.

The Phishsonian Institute, with Oregon State University Philosophy School of Phish, and PhanArt, is proud to announce “Below The Moss Forgotten: Phish in the Pacific Northwest,” a museum exhibit about the band and its relationship with the region.

From Ashland 1991 to The Gorge 2018, Phish’s time out here perfectly mirrors the band’s evolution and growth and will be represented by fan-created art and some choice artifacts. The exhibit will be presented in the Horizon Lounge of the Memorial Union on the OSU campus in Corvallis, Oregon. It will coincide with the first-ever Phish Studies academic conference on May 17-19, 2019. This is the Phishsonian’s first exhibit with PhanArt in what it hopes will be many.

In order to make this exhibit happen, the Phishsonian Institute and PhanArt are looking for donations to help fund materials needed for presentation. To donate, please visit Go Fund Me and support this archival endeavor. If you own a business and would like to sponsor this exhibit and the Phish Studies conference, please contact Stephanie Jenkins of Oregon State at stephanie.jenkins@oregonstate.edu.

Lastly, to understand Phish’s time in the Pacific Northwest, you just have to listen to the tapes. The Phishsonian Hour on JEMP Radio will be airing an 11-part series about Phish in the Pacific Northwest leading up to the conference. It airs every Thursday at 2 PM East/11 AM West, kicking off today with selections from Spring and Fall 1991. Please tune in.

In an unprecedented collaboration between an academic journal and live music community, Phish.net, the Philosophy School of Phish, and the Public Philosophy Journal (PPJ) are soliciting abstracts for essays about the improvisational rock band Phish, its music, and fans. Selected papers that successfully complete the PPJ’s Formative Peer Review process will be published in a special issue of the Public Philosophy Journal, co-edited by Dr. Stephanie Jenkins (Oregon State University, assistant professor of Philosophy) and Charlie Dirksen (Mockingbird Foundation, Vice President and Associate Counsel).

Contributors may submit abstracts on any topic of philosophical significance related to the Phish phenomenon. Proposed essays should explore philosophical questions, problems, concepts, themes, or historical figures through connections to the music and fan culture of Phish. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

Aesthetics: beautiful; sublime; emotion

Music, performance, and lyrics: conceptual themes; Gamehendge mythology; improvisational ethos; live performance; music ontology; narrations; gags
