Pictures of the EMP Museum's Pearl Jam Poster Art Exhibit


In case you missed, the news, the Experience Music Project (EMP) Museum has opened a Pearl Jam poster art exhibit entitled Push Me, Pull Me: Pearl Jam and the Art of the Screen Printed Poster, at Seattle-Tacoma Airport.

We snagged a couple of photos of the unveiling from Twitter, and you can see what Pearl Jam had to say:
Organized by EMP Museum, in collaboration with Pearl Jam, Ten Club and Ames Bros., PUSH ME, PULL ME: Pearl Jam and the Art of the Screen Printed Poster features 85 posters from more than 30 artists including the Ames Bros., Brad Klausen, Munk One, Ward Sutton, and others. These posters reflect the artists that created them, but they also become an extension of the band, referencing the musicians, the venues and cities in which they play, song lyrics, contemporary politics, a world of music, and a love of history and popular culture. But most of all, these myriad posters illustrate some of Pearl Jam’s core artistic values: the desire to foster a climate of creativity, to act as a patron for the other artists, and to provide comment and critique on society and humanity.

The new exhibit is located near gate A1 on the concourse along three walls of the walkway and can be accessed by any traveler post security.
