Best Scene-Uniting Retrospective 

Danny Gibson - Quietly Contributing

As DJG Design, artist Danny Gibson spent the past decade making vibrant concert posters for local bands and national acts that came through town. Earlier this year, Gibson retired the business in the interest of focusing more on visual art. In September, 1819 Central Gallery marked the milestone by inviting Gibson to display the contents of his studio: some 400 posters, plus process work. At the First Friday opening, the view was stunning: rows and rows of original art, stretching from floor to ceiling, bearing the names of Kansas City and Lawrence bands past and present. Musicians mingled and searched for their old bands on the wall. Quietly Contributing was a giant, overwhelming, colorful shrine to our music community, and a reminder of the staggering talent of one of our city's finest artists. And if you missed the opening, you're in luck — the show has been extended through October.
