Event Details

Come join in the fun as we create a massive 66-foot woodblock print using a steamroller!

This is the culmination of the Exquisite Gorge Project, a collaborative printmaking project featuring 11 artists working with communities along a 220-mile stretch of the Columbia River.

Artists worked with community members from their assigned stretch of river and carved images on 4 x 6 foot wood panels. Each completed panel will be connected end-to-end and printed using a steamroller to create a massive 66-foot print. Washington State Poet Laureate, Claudia Castro Luna, will be at Maryhill to create a poem commemorating the event and the Columbia River. Meet the artists at noon, then enjoy kids printmaking activities, music and more. Free on the grounds of Maryhill Museum of Art.
