PRINT IT! At Muskegon Heritage Museum
Printing Techniques and Hands-on Demonstration
Sundays, June 11, July 2 & 23, August 13 & 27
10:00 am and 2:00 pm
MMA Cultural Partner, The Muskegon Heritage Museum will present demonstrations and a special exhibition about intaglio and letterpress printing in the MHM print shop, featuring etched copper plates and relief wood blocks as well as glass plate negatives from its collection. These tools and techniques are just like those used by Edward Curtis in the early part of the 20th century when he created the stunning photogravures of The North American Indian. Workshop participants will get to use a 100-year-old letterpress machine!
