Nagel Poster @ Glenwood Bar

           Cool poster for the now unpopular? Glenwood Bar on Glenwood and Morse. If recent events have ostracized the local gay community maybe they should turn straight. Love how the poster promotes the Redline as well, it looks like the Redline is coming out of the poster at you. One of Nagel's works was famously on the cover of Duran Duran's Rio Album

          According to Wikipedia Patrick Nagel died of a heart attack at 38 in 1984. Didn't know he had died at such an early age. The paintings he did would start with actual models. He then simplified the image. Mr Nagel was influenced by Japanese woodblock print and Toulouse-Lautrec. The event being promoted by the Nagel poster only happens once a month on the third Sunday.
