Paramount Pictures is running unannounced pop-up screenings of Jason Reitman‘s new film Young Adult in cities around North America. As a special bonus, Reitman and Paramount enlisted the curatorial services of Los Angeles’ famous pop culture art gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for the surprise screenings.
There have been pop-up screenings in Toronto and Minneapolis, each with an accompanying poster. Tonight’s screening is in Chicago, and as at the two previous screenings attendees get a unique piece of limited edition artwork. For the Chicago show, area artist Anne Benjamin was enlisted to design the poster. Check it out in full after the break.
Chicago’s Anne Benjamin is an illustrator, graphic designer, and printmaker, who also is the founder and designer of Mok Duk custom invitations, a company focused on custom one-of-a-kind invitations, greeting cards, and art prints.
Keep checking back for more art from the Young Adult pop-up screenings. There will be more screenings in coming days, though we don’t have the specific information ahead of time.
