Today’s episode features the founder of a community printshop in Chicago. Angee Lennard started Spudnik Press with a drive to create something that could serve a community of artists, and create a hub where people could work together, share equipment, and teach others about the printing arts. It’s not a simple business to run, and it takes a lot of elbow grease and persistence to create this type of print studio and make it sustainable, Spudnik Press has been going for 13 years now, which is pretty incredible considering it started in Angee’s apartment. The artists there work together to maintain the space and activate it with lots of programs including publishing prints with outside guest artists. This is a good episode if you love print and the community it fosters.
