Portfolio of Woodcut Prints
This Portfolio of Woodcut Prints on “Human Rights” is a project of SOS ART in collaboration with Taller Burro Press in Oaxaca, Mexico. It consists of 25 prints by 12 artists from Oaxaca and 12 artists from Cincinnati, each addressing one of 12 human rights, and the 25th print, the title page, created by an artist from Cincinnati.
The purpose of the portfolio was to challenge artists to create images and messages around human rights through a collaborative process across different cultures; also to raise funds for both SOS ART and Taller Burro Press for their current and future projects.
The portfolio has been printed in an edition of 50, 25 given to the 25 participating artists in both Cincinnati and Oaxaca, and the remaining 25 shared between SOS ART and Taller Burro Press for future sales. Each print is in black and white, 12×12” centered on a 15×15” Guarro Canson 250 g cotton paper.
Most of the participating artists are widely exhibited and known internationally.
The majority of the portfolios will be sold as such, and only a few broken up to be sold print by print. If interested in either please contact SOS ART at firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be two shows in both Cincinnati and Oaxaca to feature the 25 portfolio prints, in addition to other works by each of the participating artists; dates to follow. The shows will be the occasion of cultural manifestations and collaborative visits by artists from each location. Stay tuned!
