Lettering in Public
by Katherine Montalto
Last Saturday (April 25) at Signal-Return Press Jordan and Kelly of Golden Sign Company did a hand lettering demonstration to close out the Lettering in Public show on displayed there since March 21. The audience, many of them part of the ArtX Detroit Gallery Crawl, gathered around the front window of the shop to watch the artists share their techniques. Nick Tobier, curator of the Lettering in Public show was also on hand to discuss the art.
