Someday My Prints Will Come

pete cardosoAnd, 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.

  1. I’m not sure. I know the lottery itself is at the end of the month, and you go and draw a number and then pick up your print. I think they’re just pre-selling tickets now, but for only $75 I’m not sure how long they’ll last.

    So, who, where, when can I buy a raffle ticket? Do I have to go to the party? I’m a fat old guy who does not go to parties, but loves prints. More info please. Thang kew.
