Prints Gone Wild

Attention! Attention!
The ink-slinging, typesetting tricksters Mike Houston and Martin Mazorra of Cannonball Press, are pulling back the curtains on their sixth annual sideshow: Prints Gone Wild at Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn on Friday and Saturday.

This print-maker mayhem will unroll during Print Week when a ragtag mob of dirty printmakers descend on Brooklyn to peddle their affordable art. With prices better than a stick in the eye (everything is less than $50) you are guaranteed to find prints more healing than snake oil for your visual pleasure. Head out to Brooklyn to pick up a juicy print bursting with fresh ink and catch some live music and sip on beer.

Now, I may just be a sideshow shill, but I can attest to the value of the prints these artists are peddling, I treasure each one I’ve scored at past Prints Gone Wildthey cured my walls of beigedom with their shock of black and white graphics.
