Thousand Print Summer Update

By Dave Machacek


The ArtOrg 2012 Thousand Print Summer is well underway and we have already printed for well over 1000 kids and adults. Highlights from this summer are many, but check out the completed photos for details. If we had to single out some highlights, they would invariably include: the completion of a special “History of Mexican Printmaking” piece from the MIA parts of which that we give to each participant (English here, Spanish here), the record-breaking 380 prints in 6 hours at the Minneapolis Monarch Festival, the great turnout on a cold day at Culturfest in Owatonna, and the video of a somewhat obstinate llama at the Wadena County Fair. We still have a few events coming up, so please keep checking the ArtOrg schedule! Thanks to all of the workers who printed and artists who made prints. Most of these events are under an Arts Access Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, and we are proud to say “this activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the State‚Äôs arts and cultural heritage fund with money from a vote of the people on November 4, 2008. Thanks, Minnesota!
