Steamroller printing? A printmaker’s dream come true.

For the first time in Hawaii, printmakers will have the very unique opportunity to take part in steamrolling their art while continuing the timely conversation on local food. PrintBig! From the Ground Up: Growing Local invites print artists to make an oversize, large-scale print by using 12 giant woodcuts during an all-day printing experience this Saturday.

The giant prints are intended to explore, investigate and comment on the role of food in our islands, while breaking down the barriers between the printshop, the art space and the public.

Camille’s on Wheels food truck will hang around for those simply interested in watching and eating, and since there are no other presses in Hawaii capable of this magnitude of prints, the community can listen to artists speak about the experience and the overall goal of such a community event.

The lesson? Print big, eat big, and when it comes to buying food, stay local.
