This was a quick and dirty poster design for one of the best art show ideas I’ve heard of in a long time. Organizer and creator James Nghiem sums up the idea behind the art show perfectly in this story on OKC.net.
“This art show is loosely inspired by the children’s basketball game H-O-R-S-E. It’s not totally similar, but something I like about the game is that it forces players to take shots they wouldn’t normally be comfortable taking. I know from experience, when working with creative things, artists sometimes tend to put a lot of pressure on themselves. This kind of pressure can be stifling. It’s like writer’s block in broader sense. What the H-O-R-S-E art show is about, is removing that block. It’s about forcing artists to take shots they wouldn’t normally take.” Read the full story on OKC.net.
Hopefully this one will become a recurring show in the Norman/OKC area. The image above might require scrolling, so check out the gallery preview of the poster linked from the thumbnail below to see the full poster.
