Thomas W. Benton: Artist/Activist – Signing tonight in Tattered Cover Denver
August 10, 2011
Heads up to those of you in Denver! Full review of this wonderful book to come tomorrow (I promise)
|Colorado artist and journalist Daniel Joseph Watkins will offer a slide show and sign his new book Thomas W. Benton: Artist/Activist ($39.95 People’s Press), a collection of 150 images of artwork by silkscreen artist Thomas W. Benton. Benton’s posters cataloged political movements and elections from 1968 to 2006 and are a powerful visual account of the issues and campaigns that shaped history. Watkins’s book includes never-before-published images of the Aspen Wallposters, a collaboration of Benton’s art and Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson’s writing that promoted their Freak Power movement. The book also includes Benton’s commercial work in Aspen as a signmaker/printmaker, his architectural projects in Colorado, and ten poems by close friend and lyricist Joe Henry.Request a signed copy: email@example.com|
