Art In The Age Presents A Civil War-Inspired Exhibit In Honor Of The War’s 150th Anniversary, On Display Through August 27
Local artist collective Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction has lent its space to Philly-based design and illustration studio The Heads of State to create a visual battlefield in commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the start of the Civil War.
The Heads of State, owned by Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers, has created, exclusively for this exhibit, deconstructed and reinterpreted images of battle scenes, war torn capitals, regimental flags and newspaper headlines. The duo created a variety of silkscreened and archival prints “that are sure to please Yanks, Rebels and Objectors alike.”
For August’s First Friday, Art in the Age will be hosting a reception from 6-8 p.m., complete with Civil War inspired refreshments and entertainment. The artists will also be in attendance at the reception to discuss their designs.
