On Sunday September 30th starting at 11am at the The National Gallery of Jamaica will host an exhibition which I am super excited to see. The World-A-Reggae exhibition will showcase 100 of the best entries from the First International Reggae Poster Contest.
Established and organized by the Jamaican, US-based poster artist Michael Thompson and the Greek poster artist Maria Papaefstathiou, the First International Reggae Poster Contest was launched in December 2011, on the theme “Towards a Reggae Hall of Fame: Celebrating Great Jamaican Music”, and the call for entries was circulated globally, mainly by means of social media. By the deadline for entries in April 2012, the organizers had received a total of 1142 entries by 678 designers from 80 countries, on themes inspired by, and in tribute to, Jamaican music.
The exhibition runs until November 20th, 2012 and is a must see!!
