"The Big Tuna" visits Amherst, MA

BIG INK director Lyell Castonguay brought his 4′ x 8′ mobile etching press “The Big Tuna” to Amherst College, where he printed his personal work for students and answered questions about his artistic process. Castonguay was invited as part of the school’s Art Ecologies initiative which explores the confluence of art and ecology through a series of performances, workshops and discussions led by artists who are engaged with art that is focused on our relationship to ecological systems and materials.
