2012 Polaris Posters Are For Sale At Kid Icarus

· by Aaron Brophy

Each year Polaris and our official curator Kid Icarus commissions some of the best in art and graphic design to create an ultra-limited edition run of posters inspired by the 10 albums on the Short List.

We’re now ready to unveil this year’s poster designs.

This year’s poster artists are:

Cadence Weapon Hope In Dirt City by Genevieve Simms
Cold Specks I Predict A Graceful Expulsion by Jud Haynes
Drake Take Care by Sandi Falconer
Kathleen Edwards Voyageur by Kirsten McCrea
Feist Metals by Pat Hamou
Fucked Up David Comes To Life by Alex Westgate
Grimes Visions by Stephanie Cheng
Handsome Furs Sound Kapital by Jack Dylan
Japandroids Celebration Rock by Luke Ramsey

Although most of these limited run posters end up being scooped up by band members and Polaris jurors, a special few end up becoming available to the public. This year’s posters will go on sale through Kid Icarus starting on September 17. To check out the entire run of Polaris posters available for purchase, go here.

These posters are also available for in-person pickup at Kid Icarus, 205 Augusta Avenue, in Toronto’s Kensington Market.


Stay up to date with the latest in the industry.
