The Political Print with Maureen Cummins

Center for Book & Paper Arts Fall Artist in Residence Workshop

The Political Print with Maureen Cummins

Saturday, October 23


In the spirit of agitprop, join CPBA artist-in-residence Maureen Cummins for a workshop that employs traditional Letterpress printing techniques to create a politically motivated poster. Cummins will draw on examples from her own work and print collection to lead the group through the creative process, from conceptualization to printing. Working collectively, the group will produce a poster in an edition, and each participant will leave with one or more copy.

Participants need not have Letterpress or advanced printing experience, but should be practicing artists with an active interest in politically driven art.


Please email Jessica Cochran,;

*Space is limited to 5 graduate students, and spots will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.
