Print Fest

Event date: 
Friday, October 5, 2018 - 12:00pm - 5:00pm

Print Fest is a large-format, steam-roller woodblock printing spectacle, with a variety of printmaking kiosks, food trucks, music and more! There will be screen printing, wood and linoleum block printing, 3D printing, CNC engraving, tintype portraits, buttons made from tiny prints, printed t-shirts and a kids print-stamping booth. Tintype portraits and printed t-shirts are available for purchase (bring a t-shirt, or buy one on site). There will also be raffles throughout the day with chances to win some cool, print-themed prizes. All proceeds from print-related sales will benefit the Art Department's Print Club, Studio Art Photography Area programming, AIGA/Graphic Design, and travel-related scholarships.
