MAPC 2012 Conference – Call for Proposals, New Deadline: Feb. 12

Pressing Prints/Pressing Palms: The Entrepreneurial Printmaker
2012 Mid America Print Council Biennial Conference
Southeast Missouri State University
Cape Girardeau, Missouri

PROPOSALS DUE: February 12, 2012, midnight
Printmakers have an extensive and unique history of bringing innovation to the field of fine art through new technologies, inventive approaches, and original images. We have also long been an entrepreneurial force in creating small businesses that involve printmaking, such as collaborative print studios, print workshops, print publishers, galleries, letterpress shops, mobile presses, and more. In these spaces that bridge the private act of making art and the public act of running a business, printmakers create, generate, swap, exchange, persuade, transfer, barter, trade, invent, and negotiate. As printmakers we are inherently risk-takers, groundbreakers, innovators, and entrepreneurs.
MAPC 2012 will go back to its small college town roots, where printmakers will explore the innovative River Campus in Cape Girardeau, Missouri at Southeast Missouri State University, the only public institution in the state to have a separate arts campus. Overlooking the Mississippi River and the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge, River Campus will serve as the home base for the conference. Printmakers will also explore Old Town Cape on First Friday and, of course, become familiar with West Park Lanes during the time-honored MAPC Bowling Night.
