Really big prints made with a steamroller

Steamroller Printing

WVA president Christine Style and several other members of WVA participated in “Really Big Prints”, in which a steamroller, loaned from the City of Manitowoc was used as a printing press. This event took place during July and was followed by an exhibit of the prints at the city’s Rahr-West Art Museum and the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum. Artists brought a large-scale relief matrix and then printed an edition of large relief prints.
More than 50 Printmakers from near and far came to UW-Manitowoc and created 45 large scale (60” x 36”) relief prints. This event has already put Manitowoc on the map for printmakers and print collectors. The number of participants and duration of the event is nearly unique, as well as the opportunity for the printmakers to print a limited edition of their large print, and have it exhibited “hot off the press.” Mark your calendars for next year and “think big”. The prints will be on display at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum from September 5 – 22 with a closing reception, Saturday, September 22.
