This spring, we visited Flatstock 53 -- part of an ongoing series of exhibitions presented by the American Poster Institute, featuring the work of many of the world's most popular and talented concert poster artists working today. Over 80 poster artists working in various styles, colors and techniques were in attendance this year, and we had the opportunity to chat with three of them -- Dan Stiles, Travis Bone and Mishka Westell. We picked up some of their posters -- pictured below -- and you could take home any of the five this week (June 13-17, 2016).

Starting today, June 13, we'll share our interviews with the poster artists through Facebook and Twitter. Like or share one of those videos, and you'll be entered to win that artists' poster through a random drawing.
