Impressions of Courage honoring those who fought cancer

Art on Wheels is working with Studio Two Three to create the World’s Largest Collagraph- composed of clothing, which represents someone who fought cancer.

Art on Wheels is working with Studio Two Three to create the World’s Largest Collagraph- composed of clothing, which represents someone who fought cancer. A collagraph is a print that is made with various materials that you wouldn’t traditionally consider to be used in print making. In this case it’s clothing.

To Honor loved ones in our community, We will be using clothing to represent each honoree.

The clothing will be made into a printmaking plate and be printed on one piece of fabric using a steamroller.

How to Register a Loved One
Gather an Outfit. Make sure it is a complete outfit (ie pants and shirt). The outfit does not have to be the honoree’s actual clothing, just represent them.
Bring outfit to one of the Registration Sites along with a completed registration form and a $25 registration fee.
We have a maximum of 300 honoree’s to be included in the World Record. Don’t delay make your submission today!
Note: Outfits will be destroyed in the printing process and will not be returned
July 31st: Deadline to Register
