Opening Reception for Unbelievable Things: 25 Years of Art on Merge Records

July 18, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In honor of our 25th anniversary, we are bringing to life iconic album covers from the label’s history. From July 18 through August 9, the original artwork from seminal albums by Superchunk, Lambchop, Arcade Fire, Spoon, and over 40 others will be displayed at LIGHT Art + Design in Chapel Hill, NC.

The exhibit aims to unite art and music fans by taking them beyond the static dimensions of CDs and vinyl and showing them how artwork remains an integral part of the album-making process. Those familiar with Merge Records will be able to personally experience images they know and love in their original format, while new fans will have a chance to view works by well-known artists such as Kara Walker, Dan Graham, and Wayne White, among others.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 18, from 6–9 p.m. at LIGHT Art + Design and will include a performance by Merge artists Shark Quest. This event is free and open to the public.
