Opening Weekend Book Signing with Ed Hardy

de Young Museum Store - Free event admission 
July 13, 3 pm–4 pm  

Join us Saturday, July 13 from 3 pm–4 pm for a special book signing during the opening weekend of Ed Hardy: Deeper than Skin. During this special event Ed Hardy will be on-site to sign copies of the exhibition catalogue, available for purchased at the museum store.

Ed Hardy: Deeper than Skin is the first museum retrospective of the tattoo artist and surveys Hardy’s life in art that has as its inspiration both traditional American tattooing of the first half of the twentieth century and Japan’s ukiyo-e era culture. Paintings, drawings, prints, and three-dimensional works spanning 40 years track Hardy’s goal of elevating the tattoo from its subculture, “outsider” status to a more important visual art form. Featured exhibits will, in the words of the artist, “reflect the disturbing nature of tattooing itself, the blurry patina of aged tattoos that have been in the skin for many decades, and design sheets yellowing on old tattoo parlor walls—a faded world almost extinct” in the fad tattooing of contemporary culture.
