Resident Printmaker Michael Benedetti Teams Up with USD497 Students

Michael Bennedetti, our new resident printmaker, has been hard at work doing outreach in the public high schools.  Last month, he presented his work and a design challenge to over 200 students at both Lawrence High and Free State.  The design challenge to create two block prints (one folded into a form and the other embellished with illustration) will be curated by members of the Arts Center’s curatorial board HANG12. and Bennedetti. The results will be paired with work from Benedetti and  hang in a show entitled I Am Accumulation at Yantra, 840 Massachusetts Street. The show opens for the National Print Week Gallery Crawl on October 19 from 5-8pm and then again on Final Friday, October 27 from 5-9pm. Come help us celebrate the partnership of an international artist and local students.
