BIG Print Project - July 1, 2 , 3, 2016 Granville Island Canada Day long weekend 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Vancouver International Jazz Festival in conjunction with Creative Cultural Collaborations Society and the Society for Contemporary Works on Paper presents the BIG PRINT PROJECT on Granville Island July 1, 2, 3 and 4th, 2016
“With each set of prints, everyone seemed equally invested in the successful outcome of the process. It was a beautiful summer afternoon in a city that can use a lot more of this kind of art project: simple, playful, ambitious and carefully attuned to the unique topography of the surrounding metropolis.” Antonio Eligio (Tonel), writing about The Big Print Project 2014
This summer, artists and public alike will engage in an unique event: printmaking with a steamroller. The series of stunning 4’X 8’ prints will be pulled from the pavement of Granville Island using an industrial construction roller as a printing press. Taking place in a parking lot on Granville Island, 11 different prints will be inked and printed…not once, but four times each. A collaborative team of professional artists including: Mariko Ando, Ben Bonner (collaboration) Matt, Bobbie Burgers, Leonard Brett,Taiga Chiba, Ian Forbes, Saskia Jette, Barbara Klunder, Arnold Shives, Kelly Shpeley, Tracey Tarling, and Richard Tetrault.
Along with Artistic Directors of the 2nd Big Print Project, Peter Braune and Richard Tetrault
