SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - You can now take some of the greatest performers of the last 25 years home with you for the holidays and help the Santa Barbara Bowl at the same time.
Concert posters from the collection of Moss Jacobs, who has been booking bands at the bowl for years, are available for purchase.
Each one is specially made by the artist Emek.
They are now hanging up for sale at The Shopkeepers store on Yanonali Street in the Funk Zone of Santa Barbara.
Jacobs says the collection spans a wide variety of talent that's been at the bowl including, Van Morrison, No Doubt, Radiohead, Willie Nelson, Beck, The Mars Volta and more.
"It is an advertisement, it is a memory, and it is a piece of art all in one," said Jacobs. "I have collected them for years and I really like the multi layers that throws out at everyone and you can put them on your wall and still reminisce about the show for a long time. "
Jacobs says the poster art can be purchased framed or just as a print.
10 percent of the proceeds will go back to the Bowl Foundation which supports performing arts in the community, especially for students and also future improvements at the bowl venue on Milpas Street.
"Most of the posters are bowl shows," said Jacobs.
Jacobs says the posters are also street art when a show is coming.
"There is one, a Radiohead poster that's been stamped in aluminum. I've never seen anything else like it," said Jacobs. "It's very rare."
Some of the posters, Jacobs says, will not be available after they are sold here.
"There are only one or two of them left."
