Exhibition Overview

Honolulu Printmakers holds Hawai‘i's first steamroller printing at the Honolulu Museum of Art School on Aug. 4, 10am-4pm. An actual steamroller will be at the school, and will be driven over large-scale plates made by selected artists. The resulting works will be on view in the school's Mezzanine Gallery.

Teams and solo artists are creating 12 giant woodcuts for the Aug. 4 steamroller printing session. For the print artists, PrintBig is an opportunity to make a large-scale print—there is not a single press in Hawai‘i that can print a four-by-eight-foot woodcut.

The theme of the prints is "growing local." Through their giant prints the participating artists will speak to their community about food as an expression of who we are as a society and as individuals. For the community, PrintBig is a chance to think about "Eat Right, Eat Local," and be aware of the role of food in our islands. This community project seeks to break down the barriers between the printshop, the art space, and the public by taking printmaking out onto the streets for everyone.
