This past summer we had an unusual number of print and letterpress workshops that focused on posters — a classic format for sending short messages about anything from social justice to next week’s show at the music hall. Although the posters were not documented in any systematic way, we are happy to present a gallery with a somewhat random selection the broadcasts from these workshops.
Mere posters were not enough for Martin Mazzora (left) and his workshop students.
On July 4, between the parade and the fireworks, they set up an outdoor print studio, made a selection of their woodcuts available, in invited one and all to bring a T-shirt and have it turned into art.
Not to be outdone, the crew in Brad Vetter’s letterpress workshop stayed up very late the last night of Seventh Session and made a poster for everyone on campus.
It expressed a sentiment we can heartily endorse.
