Hops & Gold: The Chicago Gilders Brewery Sign Exhibition
08-30 Jun 2018
Ugly Step Sister Art Gallery, Chicago
Hops & Gold: The Chicago Gilders Brewery Sign Exhibition, is a showcase of the distinct characteristics of two handmade trades, gilding and brewing. By focusing on the the long held relationship between sign makers and brewers, Hops & Gold highlights the tradition of gold leaf signs in breweries throughout the Midwest at the turn of the twentieth century and today. The relationship between sign maker and brewer is seen throughout Chicago and as sign artists maintaining the craft of gold leaf, our continued relationship with the local brewery scene is of utmost importance and a source of ongoing production and creativity.
Opening night will be from 6pm on June 8th at Ugly Step Sister Gallery in Pilsen.
The show is supported by: W&B Gold Leaf, Finch Beer Co., Goose Island Beer Co., Rock Island Public House and Alulu Brewery and Pub.
