Sticker show and Martha Cooper at Maxwell Colette Gallery

Last night, Chicago's Maxwell Colette Gallery opened a show based on DB Burkeman's extensive sticker art collection in conjunction with the book Stickers: Stuck Up Piece of Crap, which he published last year  containing images of thousands of stickers. Today Saturday, both Burkeman and legendary documentary photographer Martha Cooper will be signing books at the gallery from 1 to 3 pm.  Martha Cooper is the co-author of the seminal graffiti book, Subway Art, as well as the author of documentary books ranging from Street Play, the Hip-Hop Files, and Going Postal.

Martha was out here in Chicago a few years ago for the release party for the 25th anniversary edition of Subway Art.

That was a lot of fun.  Today's show and signing should be just as great.
