Join CAMH and AIGA Houston in welcoming Erik Marinovich, San Francisco-based lettering artist and designer. Marinovich poses the question, “What makes lettering and hip hop so appealing, and why are the similarities between them so uncanny?” He explores the parallels between these art forms, and the effects each have on their respective industry and culture at large.
Please arrive early as this is a free event and seats will still be first come, first served. Registering here or on the Facebook event does not guarantee you a seat. Thanks for your cooperation!
This talk is hosted by CAMH and AIGA Houston.
