2016 Commemorative ACL Festival Artist Poster
Following our longstanding tradition of working with Austin’s finest artists, we tapped local art hero Jules Buck Jones to create the 2016 official ACL Festival poster. And this foxy design is one cute little heartbreaker. Rendered in an expressive, painterly style, the design features a winsome woodland creature stepping out of a tangled wilderness, ready to adorn your walls. We’re offering it in two different print editions for both the serious and more casual collector. As always, once they are sold out they will not be reissued.
• Commemorative Edition $30 — Offset-printed with four-color process ink on heavyweight, uncoated paper. Includes complete band lineup. 18” x 24”
• Signed & Numbered Edition $175 — Screen-printed on heavyweight, 100% cotton rag fine art paper. The fox is printed with glow-in-the-dark ink. Includes complete band lineup. Printed in a numbered edition of 300 that is also signed by the artist. 24”x 36”
• All posters will begin shipping in September. You will receive a follow-up email with more shipping details when the poster ships.
