mpThe Month of Printmaking (Mo’ Print) is a biennial celebration of the art of making original, fine-art prints. By partnering with a critical mass of participating artists, galleries and other partners it serves to promote exhibits, workshops, demonstrations, and events that inspire, educate and promote awareness of this art form throughout the Denver area and Colorado. The planners are delighted to announce the launch of 2020 programming that begins in January but has a focus of events during March—the official month of celebration—and some extending into April. The first Mo’Print took place in 2014 with enthusiastic attendance and is marking its 4th run, deferring, every other year to the comparable Month of Photography.

This year there are fifty exhibitions alone to explore across the front-range, that kicked-off with some early openings on January 16th at the Arvada Center. 528.0 is a regional juried printmaking exhibition including artists residing within a five hundred- and twenty-eight-mile radius of Denver. Imprint: Print Educators of Colorado is an exhibition of print educators from institutions of higher education from across the state of Colorado. Next to open at this location is the Spirit Resonance: The Vitality of Printmaking which runs from January 18 – April 5, 2020.

Another popular event includes the exciting Steamroller Printing on where over-sized woodblocks are inked and printed under the drum of a 2-ton steamroller. Artists can sign up to have their prints made, and the community is invited to observe on Saturday, April 18, 2020, 10 AM – 4 PM on the RMCAD campus, 1600 Pierce Street, Lakewood, CO 80214

A full listing and calendar of exhibitions, workshops, and events can be found at http://www.moprint.org. Some of the hand-on workshops do require registration and fees. Participants are encouraged to register early to ensure your spot.
