Spudnik Press Turns One: Celebration and Fundraiser

Saturday, June 7, 2008 7pm-2am
Gallery opening: “3-Dimensional Prints”
Air Hockey Tournament & Dance Party

Spudnik Press hosted a night of festivities on Saturday, June 7th to celebrate our first year as Chicago’s alternative, cooperative printmaking studio. 3-Dimensional Prints was a group show featuring 23 artists from Chicago and beyond using a variety of printmaking methods atop a blue and red 3-D grid. When these prints are viewed through snazzy Magic Viewing Glasses, the images vibrate and pop off the page.

The Spudnik Press Air Hockey Tournament helped raise funds to allow Spudnik to have a residency program. Applications for residencies will be available July 1st. Players took home prizes ranging from silkscreened posters to journals to votives, etc etc… Jeremy Tinder won the raffle for a free month of open studios at Spudnik Press.

At 10pm, we kicked off the dance party. Good times were had to celebrate the first year of printiness here at Spudnik.
