Neighborhood Printing Collective is an ongoing printmaking and community building workshop. It's mission is two-fold: To host printmaking workshops enabling participants to create a personal tribute to their neighborhood, and 2: To collect stories related to living and working pre and post Verrazzano Bridge, BQE and Gowanus Expressway. After building and printing several iterations of their collagraph plates, participants will leave me their plates to combine them with others to create large scale neighborhoods intended to celebrate a community despite the high speed roadways cutting through them.
