Since Banksy's blockbuster exhibit "Dismaland" is tucked away in a remote patch of land in the UK, most of us will have to find other ways to get our street art fix. That's where Printology comes in, an event that will celebrate the art of printing and include major works from artists like Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader, D*Face, JR, Blek Le Rat, and Swoon.
The event, which is headed to the U.S. for the first time, has compiled 50 v. rare prints that will be used to examine the street art of printing. The works of art included in the event were curated by Charlotte Dutoit and Rom Levy from JUSTKIDS. The curators see prints as a crucial way for an artist to spread his work from the streets to the masses.
A master printer from Italy, Marco Scellato, will also be in attendance printing silk screens and interacting with guests throughout the event.
The event is taking place in Fort Smith, Arkansas at the University of Arkansas' new Windgate Arts and Design Building and kicks off tomorrow, Sept. 3.
