Discover the process of printing large-scale relief cuts using a steamroller as a massive makeshift printing press! Full Steam Ahead is free to attend at RAM’s Wustum Museum, 2519 Northwestern Avenue, on Saturday, August 12, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Relief printing is a process where a design is carved into wood or similar materials to make a protruding surface that can be inked and printed on paper or fabric. Printing relief cuts using a steamroller offers an over-the-top spectacle for participants and viewers alike. The resulting new pieces will be available for purchase alongside a selection of the artists’ existing work. Proceeds benefit both the artists and Wustum.
At this year’s event, be blown away by the exceptional talent of Lisa Bigalke, Melody Bigalke, Samira Gdisis, William Greider, Diane Levesque, Michael Nitsch, Polar Ghost, Amy Misurelli Sorensen, Joseph Szabo, Jeremy Topczewski, Sheila Walsh, Kelly Witte, and Alex Yee.
