The exhibition will feature a timeline of iconic images with captions, from Rich Wagner’s own collection. Presented as label imagery on 99 bottles of beer, this timeline will carefully illustrate the effects of industrialization such as refrigeration, packaging, transportation and architecture, on the Philadelphia brewing industry. Three posters created by Rich Wagner will be on display and for sale: Philadelphia Brewery Directory, Brewerytown-Philadelphia and Brewery Architecture in Pennsylvania.

Art In The Age of Mechanical Reproduction firmly believes in empowering artists producing high quality work marked by fine craft and intellectual rigor. We do so by applying the fruits of such labors to the cultural forms of everyday life, granting those who wish to engage the opportunity to do so in his/her own environment. Rather than exist at unnerving distance in the white cube of the gallery space, we weave our offerings into the collective surface of myriad personal contexts.
In this troubling epoch of industrial commoditization, standardization of reproduction, and fomentation of a society of shallow spectacle, Art In The Age issues a challenge and
rally cry. We fight fire with fire, subsuming the onslaught of watered down facsimiles and inaccessible displays with thought-provoking products of real cultural capital. Art in the Age is the unity of art, craft, design and contemplation.
