See the process and meet Printmaking Visiting Artist Taro Takizawa at the 16th Annual Road  Roller Day on Wednesday, March 8 from 10 – 5 p.m. on Rowland Commons near Vanderslice Hall.

Road roller printing is an experience that’s not usually available for public viewing. The process requires a road roller, a heavy construction vehicle used for leveling surfaces, to be used as the pressure point to transfer the ink from a matrix onto a piece of fabric or paper, creating a printed design. KCAI Printmaking students will be making and displaying the prints throughout the event with the theme of Liquid Ecologies.

“Art can be created anywhere, and this a great opportunity for our students to get outside, engage with the public, and show them a unique way to make prints,” said Printmaking Chair Miguel Rivera.
