Dear print-makers, print dabblers, and print lovers,
Last Best Print Fest 2020 was going to be a month-long printing extravaganza at the brand new ZACC. Our featured artist, the amazing Bev Beck Glueckert, was planning super-fun, FREE, live printing demonstrations throughout the month. So were plenty of other local print-makers, including myself. We had big plans for the First Friday Gallery Opening, complete with a live band composed entirely of print-making musicians. We were going to have a silent auction all month long of the awesome portfolio submissions we got this year. We were going to have Last Best Print Fest Bingo Cards, where you pop into local businesses to check out the print they’ve hung by our featured artist. Once you had gone to every business the card would go into a drawing for $100 towards the LBPF sponsor of your choice and a beautiful print by Bev.
And guess what? We’re still doing all of that! We’re just doing it all online — the safe way! The easy way! Keep your eyes on our social media for cool new print-making demos throughout the month. Visit our website to play Last Best Print Fest Bingo virtually, and get a chance to win $100 toward the sponsor of your choice and a beautiful print by Bev! Check out our silent auction all month long, and bid on your favorite pieces. All funds raised will go directly towards the ZACC’s Public Print Shop — the perfect place to begin your printing journey or hone your already substantial skills.
Now go check out Last Best Print Fest 2020 & get printing, Missoula!
