DC Space, Washington DC Giclée Art Print (Multi-size options)
My original design is back by popular demand, and now in a variety of sizes! Go crazy, people. NOTE: Please allow two weeks to ship.
"Space is the place!" was the rallying call as me and my fellow suburban cohorts piled into my station wagon to make our way into the nether-regions of downtown DC in the 80s. Once there, we would usually make our way up to the roof to imbibe in a 40 oz bottle of something horrible, procured from one of the lesser-repudiated merchants that dotted New York Ave. Pure paradise!
DC Space was where I saw many an influential show, same as you. Strange Boutique was my personal house fave, but others that come to mind are Shudder To Think, Monkeyspank, as well as countless Dischord/DC bands. The stage was low and the audience was part of the action.
Space felt like a secret. All the outliers from the 'burbs knew about Nightclub 9:30, but DC Space was more of an insider's haunt (or at least it felt that way to me). Now it's a Starbucks and the once-seedy neighborhood has gone high-end. You can't hold back the tides of urban progress, but you CAN slap this lovingly-made print on your wall as you pine away for the DC That Once Was.
This is printed via Giclée, a high end archival printing process that layers inks in a similar fashion to screening. The colors POP and the image is very sharp!
Paper stock is Moab Entrada Rag Natural - a warm white, 100% cotton, slightly textured, smooth fine art surface. All available options are standard frame sizes found at your local craft store, frame shop or IKEA! (frame NOT included)
