A Picture is a Word: The Posters of Rex Ray, curated by Cydney Payton and Amy Scholder, surveys graphic designs by San Francisco artist Rex Ray (1956-2015) for Bay Area concerts dating from the early 1990s through 2014.  The role of a Rex Ray concert poster was to attract attention, to compete amongst the many advertisements wheat-pasted throughout San Francisco in advance of shows.  On view at the GLBT Historical Society Museum from October 12, 2018 until February 3, 2019, the exhibition catalog features 30 colored posters of Rex Ray.
