What's Happening at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA)

Via a May 16 e-newsletter from Minnesota Center for Book Arts:

Northern Spark Community Art Making Party
Saturday, May 20; 6-9pm
MCBA's print studio

Join us as we screen print t-shirts, cut out paper leaves, and fold tiny letterpress books for TransitionNOW!, a Northern Spark project dedicated to sharing ways to reduce your carbon footprint and create a sustainable future.

TransitionNOW! is also looking for 100 people to wear the screenprinted t-shirts on June 10th for Northern Spark. A few shirts will be available on the evening of May 20th for you to screenprint, or you can bring your own pre-washed black or darkly colored t-shirt to print on. To learn more about TransitionNOW! and ways to reduce your carbon footprint, visit the Twin Cities Transition website.

Northern Spark 2017 is a free, all-night art event exploring the effects of climate change through participatory projects in neighborhoods along Metro Transit’s Green Line.
