A map of some of the many hand-painted signs around Minneapolis and St. Paul. I made this for the American Craft Council’s recent Library Salon with filmmakers Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, and signpainters Forrest Wozniak and Phil Vandervaart.
Faythe and Sam’s documentary on signpainting premieres locally at the Trylon Microcinema on June 17-18.
