Second Saturday: Reprint Frenzy
Saturday, May 8 | 12-3 p.m.

Since our printmaking inspired Second Saturday was canceled in March due to weather, we’re going to Reprint Frenzy in May! In celebration of Ed Ruscha: OKLA, this event will explore the fun and funky side of printmaking. Programs will include artist demos by design cookie artist Kaleo Maclay and experimental printmaker Virginia Sitzes, who will be printmaking on food items like tortillas and bread with chocolate and mustard! The day will also feature collaborative activities and printmaking projects -- including an art project inspired by Ruscha’s Chocolate Room. We hope you’ll join us for an afternoon of sweet surprises and contemporary creativity!
