Photos from the Printervention show at the Chicago Tourism Center Gallery. The show is a series of prints by artists who visualized what the WPA might look like if it was today. Three artists from the Justseeds Artist’s Cooperative included work – Mary Tremonte, Colin Matthes, and Nicolas Lampert whose image “Books Are Weapons” can be found here.
Great work is found throughout the show, including a mobile silk screening cart by Mike Slattery.

This looks great Nicolas! Wish I hadn’t been so busy, and sent in some posters.
The print cart looks different than the Pittsburgh design that Mary has worked on, who did this one? Does it function in real world contexts?
The cart is by Mike Slattery. Don’t quote me, but I believe there is a street printing workshop during Versionfest where it will be in use.
