Last summer, as a part of our festival, a team of volunteers, artists and professional printmakers celebrated the art of large-scale woodcut printing using a steamroller as a press. Elevating relief printmaking to an epic art form, twelve artists were engaged in reflecting themes of music and the city. The artists carved the blocks, and the works were printed in small editions in a public performance atmosphere.
The resulting suite of unique 4’ x 8’ woodprints on cloth and on paper were displayed onsite, as they came off the press and are now available for purchase in our fundraiser.
Jointly organized by the Coastal Foundation for the Performing Arts and Creative Cultural Collaborations Society.
