Print BIG! in collaboration with Atlanta Printmaker's Studio
(outdoor steamrollers used to make jumbo relief prints!)
more info...

A large-scale collaborative event with three to four associated large scale print projects created by collaborators that will all share the theme of Home and Shelter and be interactive. The topic of Home and Shelter will generate increased awareness of community needs for those who do not have sufficient provisions. Print BIG 2015 will challenge the community participants by providing interaction in new ways with art – art printed with a steam roller, art that is created and printed as a collaboration, art that is printed onto tents and installed for their interaction, art that focuses on needs in the community that surrounds all participants, art they can interact with in a festival type atmosphere but has a deeper meaning.
