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 13, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Relief printing is a process where a design is carved into wood, or a similar material, to make a protruding surface that can be inked and printed on paper or fabric. The process of printing relief cuts using a steamroller offers an over-the-top spectacle for both participants and viewers. The resulting new pieces will be available for purchase alongside a selection of the artists’ existing work. Proceeds benefit both the artists and RAM’s Wustum Museum.
Explore this fascinating art-making process with a team of professional artists from the area (listed below). Then, enjoy music curated by DJ JC Hanna while noshing on delectable dishes from local food vendors A&A Café and Frankie’s Restaurant and Catering. Various hands-on art activities will be available as well, including community printmaking with artist David Jones of Anchor Print, Press & Paper.
