Images from the opening of the pre Version 10 Festival exhibition, Printervention.
It opened Friday April 16, 2010 from 5 to 7pm at the Chicago Tourism Center Gallery, 72 E Randolph.

We have asked artists from around the country to create works that raise awareness of social and political issues of our day. Printervention underscores the necessity for the support of artists and the idea of civic responsibility to the greater society. In addition to an exhibition of over 70 posters and prints, Printervention will feature a mobile silk screen cart for distributing work in parks and on the street, a window display at The Whistler in Logan Square, as well as workshops and demonstrations at the Chicago Tourism Center Gallery.

Printervention is Presented by Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, Office of Tourism, part of Version 10, and Sponsored by the Society of Typographic Arts

Printervention is organized and curated by Emily Clayton, Chris Roberson and Ed Marszewski of the Public Media Institute.

The show will travel and expand over the year making stops in Detroit, New York and other American cities over the next year.
