The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts recently coordinated an art installation by Josh Dannin for the windows of the long-vacant Hoffman Furniture building, across from Skeletone Records.
Josh Dannin is an artist and printmaker based in Goffstown, New Hampshire. Working primarily with relief and risograph print processes, he is interested in the intersection between modern technology, traditional craft, and mass production. Dannin has a BFA in Printmaking and Photography from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and an MFA in printmaking from Ohio University. His printed and bound works have been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
Dannin runs Directangle Press, a small printshop that specializes in letterpress and risograph printing and publishing. He co-edits Power Washer Zine: a semiannual publication about screenprinting that asks soft questions and thinks hard thoughts. In addition to running group workshops at Directangle Press, he teaches printmaking, letterpress, and design at Saint Anselm College and the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
The project was completed on Saturday, January 11, 2020. A public reception will take place at the Rochester Performance & Arts Center (RPAC) on Thursday, January 23 from 6-8pm. The public is encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be served. RPAC is located at 32 North Main Street, in downtown Rochester.
The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is sponsored by the City of Rochester, Rochester Main Street, Waterstone Properties, Bernier Insurance, Experimax Portsmouth, and Atlantic Broadband.
