BIG INK facilitates large scale woodblock printing with students and alumni at UF.

"The Big Tuna" visits Gainsville, FL.

Alagarto Printmakers’ Guild hosted a Public Print Day with BIG INK. This one day outdoor event invited the public to watch and participate in printing large scale woodcut relief prints on “The Big Tuna”, a BIG INK invention that allows for printing big while on the go. All equipment and materials necessary for this event was provided by BIG INK, who’s mission is to inspire a greater public appreciation for relief printmaking and extend its practice among contemporary artists. This event will result in a showcase of the work created and prompt dialogues between students and faculty in the arts and other areas.  Alagarto Printmakers’ Guild is a UF Student Government funded organization.
