UNDER THE RADAR WITH JP BONEYARD
Discover and celebrate killer design in our own backyard! AIGA Austin's lecture series, Under the Radar, features local design badasses that put Austin on the map. Admission includes one taco ticket and enjoy free beer with your purchase of an Under the Radar pint glass.
JP Boneyard is the producer of The National Poster Retrospecticus based in Austin, Texas. The NPR is an internationally touring show that celebrates the radness of printmaking and design. JP got his start causing trouble and setting up DIY shows in his hometown of Palmer, Massachusetts. Since 1998 he has helped set up over 300 art and music events across the US. 100 of these events took place in a makeshift venue in his mother’s backyard shed. After graduating from The Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2011, JP went on to do web design and front-end development work in Boston. His job doing nerd stuff on the web helped support his vice: setting up shows like The NPR on nights and weekends. In 2014 a solid position at The IBM Mobile Innovation Lab brought JP to Austin. After their best year yet, JP has recently made the jump to full time poster carny with The NPR.
The National Poster Retrospecticus is a traveling show that features over 100 of the most prominent poster artists from around the USA. Each show pull from our collection of over 350 hand-printed posters and puts them on display for design nerds and poster enthusiasts alike.
Bonus content: Select work from The NPR will be hung during the Under the Radar Talk with JP Boneyard. Come early to scope out a variety of art prints and gig posters made by artists like Daniel Danger, Doublenaut, DKNG and locals Bobby Dixon and Kevin Tong. All prints will be for sale before and after the talk.
