This Friday, Foundation Gallery opens their latest show revolving around stellar (and my favorite) poster makers Aesthetic Apparatus, who have strong roots in the Midwest. Of course there's The Bird Machine here in Chicago, too. But there's more: The Heads of State make some beautiful stuff, and there's quite a few Wilco posters that they've done -- this one just about makes me cry. Speaking of posters, we'll have a nifty one done by Crosshair here in Chicago for our 2nd Anniversary Party on the 20th.
