Mr Musichead Gallery's owner, Motor City music man Sam Milgrom, preserves and peddles rock 'n' roll prints, original paintings, and concert memorabilia. A single-matted custom frame includes a choice of more than 3,000 mouldings and the option of UV-protection glass or plexiglas. Framing fees vary by size and materials employed, though a 16"x20" poster (with bumper guards, strap wire, and a wall hanger) or an Alice's Restaurant placemat signed by Arlo Guthrie generally cost about $100. Archival framing, including one of 10 solid wood mouldings, acid-free matboard, UV-protection plexiglas, dustcover black backing paper, bumper guards, screw-mounted strap wire, and a wall hanger costs about $199 for the same-size item. Sam also stocks hundreds of vintage frames from the '50s and '60s, as well as custom picture perimeters made from steel, iron, chrome, or heavy-metal power chords.
Mr Musichead Gallery's plethora of hand-signed prints includes Arnaud Azoulay's black-and-white depiction of Jim Morrison (12"x15" for $99) and a numbered screen-print of The Decemberists' Nottingham concert poster by Guy Burwell (17"x22" for $150). Shoppers can also check out a limited-edition likeness of Ben Harper (21"x31" for $200) by renowned poster artist Emek while an assemblage of album covers serenade them with their title tracks.
