Drawn Here: Contemporary Design in Conversation
Although the heyday of wood type was more than a century ago (think “Wanted” posters and circus broadsides), its revival and preservation carries on today. A new film, Typeface, chronicles this effort by documenting the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, which houses one of the premier wood-type collections in the world and runs letterpress workshops for designers and artists from across the country. Join us for Drawn Here: Contemporary Design in Conversation, featuring a special sneak preview of the documentary film and a post-screening discussion with director Justine Nagan; Bill Moran, St. Paul–based designer and letterpress guru who cowrote a book documenting Hamilton; and Greg Corrigan, designer and technical director of the Hamilton Museum.
Presented by the Walker Art Center, AIGA Minnesota, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
