The documentary and book profiles sign painters young and old, from the new vanguard working solo to collaborative shops such as San Francisco’s New Bohemia Signs and New York’s Colossal Media’s Sky High Murals.”

This is the first and only scheduled screening of this movie in Baltimore. Free and open to the public! not to be missed!
