2021 Hyattsville Open Call


Application Deadline: August 2, 2021

Notification: August 4, 2021

Calling all artists!

BIG INK returns to Pyramid Atlantic this fall for another exciting, and quite literally "monumental" woodblock printing experience.


No previous printmaking experience required—all artists interested in carving a large woodcut (min 24"x36", max 40"x96") are encouraged to apply. Submit your concept for consideration by August 2 for a chance to take place in this extraordinary event.

Selected artists will benefit from training, tips, and techniques, as well as a materials kit with all the tools you'll need to get your block printed.

Don't wait - learn more and apply to day!
