    Best Dressed Signs Presentation and Gilding Demonstration

     Presented By: Curatorial Opportunity Program

    FREE and open to the public!

    Josh Luke and Meredith Kasabian of Best Dressed Signs will provide an inside look at the world of sign painting and the renaissance of this traditional skill. Kasabian will lead attendees through a discussion exploring the history of sign painting, applications and misconceptions of the craft and its relevance today.
    The talk will also include an overview and demonstration of gold leafing, a complex sign painting technique that is the cornerstone of the duo’s installations for Pedigree. This subspecialty brings to mind a variety of questions about class, image, prestige and the role of traditional craftsmanship in a post-modern world.
