Woodcut to go on display
PLAINFIELD — A 200-foot-long woodcut depicting the history of U.S. Immigration carved by immigrant artists will be showcased at an art crawl at Goddard College on Wednesday.
The print, titled “Migration to Chicago,” was created in the 1990s and is believed to be the longest physical print ever made, according to Alexy Lanza, a Honduran artist who immigrated to Chicago and who is currently a student in Goddard’s MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts program.
The print measures 200 feet long and 48 inches wide, the woodcut plates were made of 25 four-by-eight-foot sheets of plywood, and 50 pounds of ink were used with a three-ton asphalt roller to print it, Lanza said in a news release.
The piece will be showcased from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the school.MORE IN This Just In
