PRINT ARTISTS STEAMROLL THEIR CREATIONS ON ADAMS ST.

 
(Ed.'s Note: Undoubtedly, art purists will thumb their noses at this new method of print making introduced by local UTRGV artists and their supporting cast, including the operator of the rented steamroller. The nouveau art exercise took place on Adams Street which was blocked to traffic (again) as they literally rolled off a number of prints as the steamroller waited for the pre-rolled preparation of the print. The artists first prepared the master and placed in on a mat (picture one), placed the blank print paper on it, placed hard plastic protector over both (2), a sturdy carpet cover over these (3), then had the steamroller go over the whole (4,5), and viola!, the finished print is lifted off the street and into the room in the San Fernando Building (6,7) where they prepared the next one. Everyone thought it was nifty and great fun except for the merchats along Adams who complained about the closing off of Admas on Saturday morning. Oh, well, one man's art is another man's economic downturn.)

I saw now deceased UTUB Art Professor Carlos Gomez do this in Kingsville, Texas 2 or 3 years ago for a presentation.

Really nice job from what I can see, and its nice to Professor Gomez legacy continue on...
