2016 PUBLIC EVENTS

May 13 - 15, 2016. 9am - 5pm. Schuylkill River Banks, Philadelphia, PA. 
Art in The Open

BYO Print is excited to participate in this year's AiO Festival on the Schuylkill Banks. Our members will work collaboratively over three days to produce a series of work on paper featuring imagery drawn at the river banks, printed on site on our mobile Conrad Etching Press. Find us along the river and learn more about printmaking, our members,' and our studio.

From the website: AiO is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspiration for creating art, and their relationships with Phildelphia's urban environment. From May 13-15, 2016 join AiO along the Schuylkill River banks - from the historic Fairmount Water Works to Bartram's Garden - where a jury-selected group of artists will create new works of art outside, in a creative process open to everyone. Artists' working times will vary with their project's particular needs; most activity takes place between 9 am and 5 pm.

Meet Your Maker- An Inside Look at Fishtown’s Creative Economy

BYO Print has called the Fishtown / Kensington Neighborhood it’s home for over 4 years now. While the neighborhood had already begun establishing itself as an Arts Corridor, we have seen some extraordinary strides recently with new businesses, restaurants, studios and art spaces popping up all over the place. The creative ingenuity is inspiring. Whether you live here, work here, or enjoy hanging out here in Fishtown, you should definitely come and “Meet The Makers” this First Friday.

The Meet Your Maker Project, created by The Art Dept, will feature makers and creative businesses in the Fishtown / Kensington area. It is a multi-faceted project that includes a photography exhibition (Opening Friday, December 6th at The Art Dept), interviews with the local “creators”, and a catalog that will act as a guide to all the wonderful things happening in the creative community of Fishtown.

How Lovely! BYO Print is so lucky to be a part of this awesome community, and lucky to have been photographed and interviewed for the project.

Here are some Links so you can learn more!
