And, gentle readers, that day is today!
It’s the opening party for the first biennial AS220 Print Lottery. 200 prints from a whole bunch of artists. You can buy a lottery ticket for $75, and the prints will be dispersed at the end of the month. Proceeds go towards keeping the print shop running.
Of course, 200 printmakers celebrating with cake and beer will probably make for something of a claustrophobia-inducing situation at AS220. But if it gets to be too much you can head down the street to the Project Space, where there’s a retrospective of Pete Cardoso’s posters happening. I’ve always liked his prints–there’s one in my kitchen!–and so that’ll surely be worth checking out as well.
