This is a private printing event with the Masters of Public Leadership program at Metro State.
Join us for an evening of imagining powerful, bold messages for change. Ashley Fairbanks will lead us in a conversation to brainstorm these statements, and together we'll select one to create a unique letterpress poster that we will set up and print in the same night.
The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived in a digital age?
This showing of Pressing On is made possible through the kind sponsorship of Studio On Fire, AIGA Minnesota, and Proof Public.
