Printervention: Printing for the Public, an exhibition and public art project inspired by cultural programs created through FDR’s New Deal and The Works Progress Administration. Printervention underscores the necessity for public support of artists and raises awareness of the social and political issues of our day. In addition to an exhibition of over 70 posters and prints, Printervention, will feature a mobile silkscreen printing cart for distributing works in the parks and streets of Chicago.
Printervention is a part of Version Festival 2010, an annual arts festival in Chicago that brings together hundreds of artist, musicians and educators from around the world. In addition to the exhibition, Printerventionists will present workshops, demonstrations and collaborations at the Gallery.
