Two-day poster workshop: Persuaded by Posters | Jan 12 & 13
Frist Center for the Visual Arts
Fri, Jan 12 6:00 pm
Join us for exclusive conversations on the power of print and posters, and how they inspired, informed, and persuaded Americans to play crucial roles in World War I. Grab this rare chance to talk one-on-one with both a Frist Center curator and a Hatch Show print educator on the significance of prints in America and their place in our Nashville story. On Day 1 of this workshop, you’ll participate in a guided tour of the exhibition World War I and American Art, during which special attention will be paid to posters by both famous and forgotten illustrators. On Day 2, respond to the exhibition and its themes by making and sharing your own poster in the Hatch Show Print classroom. Hatch Show Print, started in 1879, was a busy letterpress shop during the early 1900s and has continued to meet the printing needs of its customers. Each Hatch Show Print poster is a unique creation, individually handcrafted and inked onto paper with the centuries-old technique of letterpress printing. “Persuaded by Posters” is part of the Frist Center’s World War I and American Art Studio Workshop Series.
