Cook Auditorium
Free

Bring your lunch and join us for a free lunch and learn event with George Wietor. Wietor is an artist, curator, publisher and organizer who has worked in the printing industry for over 8 years. Wietor has gained a reputation as a local Risograph expert, and international attention for his work with Issue Press. A Risograph machine is a digital duplicator and involves printing in layers, offering similar results to screen-printing, at a much more affordable cost. Wietor will discuss his experience with Risograph printing and why it has seen a major resurgence in artist circles and publishing communities.

Following the event, explore GRAM’s collection and current exhibitions, Dylan Miner: Water is Sacred // Trees Relatives and A Decade at the Center: Recent Gifts and Acquisitions.
