Round Table Collaboration Exhibit @Central A&M

Stop by the 5th floor Art & Music Department to see an exhibit of collages collaboratively created by library users!

Library users were invited to check out collages to work on between January and August of 2017. They could take a collage started by another person home and add, remove, or change whatever they liked about their collage before returning it for someone else to check out. Each collage went through five rounds of edits before it was completed. The resulting collages are on display during regular library hours through September 30.

Block Printing Workshop @Central A&M

Come and learn the basics of water based linoleum block printing in a hands-on workshop with artist Max Stadnik. We will cover everything from planning out your image, simple carving technique, inking & printing, and basic curation. The method you will learn can be done with very few resources in your own home or studio. By the end of the workshop you will have a few color prints and your own hand carved block that you can print anytime.

Ages 12 and up are welcome at this workshop, and no experience is required.
