“BIG Ink” Celebration!

FREE & Open to the Public!
Saturday, 1 day
October 8 / 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

We invite students, artists, and the entire community to come together for this spectacular event! Let’s bring printmaking out of the studio and celebrate how fun and magical the printmaking process can be for all ages! This event is a culmination of the Hui’s 2016 Artist in Residence Program with Professor James Bailey of University of Montana. James will guide teams of volunteers as they assist him in the printing process using an unlikely and unique printing press: a steamroller! Volunteers will ink blocks that have been carved by local artists, Hui students, and youth from local schools in the weeks leading up to this “Big Ink” event. Everyone will be invited to gather round to watch the magic unfold on a large scale as James prints the woodcuts on cloth or paper by driving over them with a steamroller. James and volunteers will also print a 4’ x 8’ print that James created himself during his residency at the Hui. Bring your family and friends and you’ll love watching this exciting and interactive printmaking event!
