Cool New Collection: Professor Bob Goldstein’s Gig Posters for Science

 

This past spring University Archives acquired a wonderful collection of posters from UNC Professor Bob Goldstein.  Goldstein creates these posters to advertise guest lectures and the distinguished lecture series the within the Department of Biology.

The posters are “gig” style posters, similar to the ones you see plastered on telephone poles and kiosks around town advertising shows at local music venues.  In fact, this is where Goldstein found the inspiration to begin creating these unique posters.  They were screen printed locally at design and print shop The Merch.

Take a look at the posters in the Gig Posters for Science Flickr stream, and if you want to see the real thing, come visit us in Wilson Library!
