Friday, January 1, 202110:00 amSunday, March 21, 20216:00 pm

LBPF Event Dates:
First Friday April 2 through April 30

About Last Best Print Fest:
Last Best Print Fest is an annual month-long event devoted entirely to the wonderful world of printmaking, and is a fundraiser for the ZACC’s Public Print Shop. LBPF always includes a portfolio exchange, with each artist submitting an edition of twelve prints based on a theme. Additionally, LBPF normally boasts a featured print artist, free print demos, and a LBPF Bingo game involving local businesses. This year’s Last Best Print Fest will be run a little differently, and will feature a Print-a-Thon, where folks can sponsor the ZACC Print Shop Manager, Patricia Thornton, to ‘marathon print’ throughout one whole weekend.
