Cranbrook PrintMedia Magnetic Print Exchange

Here's an opportunity for all the printmakers and photographers out there. It's through the Cranbrook Academy of Art, so it's a good one to do.

1st Annual Cranbrook Academy of Art PrintMedia Magnetic Print Exchange

Theme: "Push-Pull: The Mechanics of Making"


1) Any EDITIONABLE printmaking technique may be used (woodcuts, litho, silkscreen, intaglio, photography, etc) DO NOT send monotypes/monoprints. Each of the prints should be same

2) Print should be printed on flat, smoothed backed mountable substrate and measure 2" x 3"
The flatter the better, as they will be mounted to magnets--The Cranbrook PrintMedia Dept. will take care of the magnetization of your prints!

3) 14 identical prints should be sent to the address below

4) Include the following info with your prints on a separate sheet of paper
>Your return address

5) Fees to cover return shipping, magnets, and materials

After receiving everyone's prints, the Cranbrook PrintMedia Dept. will randomly divide the magnets and you will be sent 12 new and different prints from other participants.
