About Flatstock 43

Presented by Vans and the American Poster Institute (API), Flatstock 43 will display the works of the world's top gig poster artists. The show runs March 13-15 and will feature posters of varying styles, colors and techniques for sale by the very artists who created them.

About API The American Poster Institute is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to serving the poster artist community and promoting the art form. The Flatstock shows provide the American Poster Institute with a way to present poster artists collectively while showcasing the breadth of styles they represent.

The best concert posters have always captured both the essence of the music they promoted and the spirit of the time in which they were produced. Flatstock provides an ongoing series of opportunities to see fine poster art in person and to meet the artists who created it.
