Hakeem Olajuwon poster by Robert Pruitt
The Houston Rockets have partnered with Contemporary Arts Museum Houston to create limited-edition posters to celebrate each of the 11 Remix Night games on Thursdays and Fridays this season. A different local artist is commissioned for each game to create a poster inspired by the Rockets alumni being honored that night. In conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the NBA only 75 posters are available from each artist. Each poster is signed by the Rockets legend.
Poster size is 14" x 20"
