Widespread Panic Syracuse Poster by Jermaine Rogers Release Details

Jermaine Rogers was commissioned by the legendary band Widespread Panic to create a print for their November 14th show in Syracuse, NY. This print measures a nice-sized 20x29 inches and sports 6 colors, including a gradient fade. Rich and earthy solids, and a soft metallic gold.

About the imagery, Jermaine says:

'I think it's probably one of the biggest swindles ever foisted on society...this default idea of 'male-dominated' gender roles. This supposedly basic understanding that man is wiser, stronger, smarter, better, and 'appointed' by nature to lead the species into the unknown future. As children, the world is designed to pump this idea into our little brains...wet clay, of sorts, that they mold and twist into little machines, ready to (sometimes unknowingly) push the 'status quo' into the next generation. Women who choose to march and fight for 'equal rights' are still perceived in some areas as 'radical'. We used to be a species of 'Goddess' worshipers. Everywhere. Every civilization. We equated some of the most powerful aspects of universal nature with the feminine. And this was balanced by the potent strength and cosmic virility of the masculine. Somewhere along the line, we got sold the current bill of goods. 'Gender roles'. Well, the ladies depicted on this print don't acknowledge those. Neither do the many WSP fans I've met. There is a very powerful 'people' vibe among these folks and that band. I dig that.'

NOTE - The SHOW EDITION of the print is on white stock and a limited edition of only 150 signed and numbered pieces. This edition is ONLY available AT THE SHOW on Thursday, November 14th.

The ARTIST EDITION is from a signed and numbered edition of only 100 and is printed on warm cream stock.

The FOIL EDITION is printed on silver holographic laser-ray foil and is from a signed and numbered edition of only 30 pieces.

The ARTIST and FOIL editions will both be available on on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15th at 3:00 PM EASTERN (12 NOON PACIFIC)
