50x4’ Community Steamroller Monoprint with Steve McKenzie and Rainbow Squadron - Steamroller printmaking is an exciting way to immerse the community to large scale printmaking. Guttenberg Arts staff and volunteers will spend the day printing large scale prints. Alongside our staff, the Guinness record breaking artist Steve McKenzie will be preparing a giant print of his own which will be printed at the end of the day as the finale and a 50’x4’ community monoprint.
Steamroller Woodcuts - While the community monoprint is being created, the steamroller will still be truckin’. The team will be inking and printing giant woodcuts by Justin Sanz, Martin Mazorra of Cannonball Press and other local artists. The prints will be hung around the park for display.
Community Mural - This project is intended to bring the local community together through chalk art. Anyone interested in picking up a piece of chalk can draw and add on to the 8’x8’ blackboard community mural.
We are very excited to bring you this great line up of artists. Don't forget to stop by this one of a kind artist market!
