Gala Celebration and
Building Campaign Kick-off
Come celebrate with us!
Sunday, May 4th
2 pm to 5 pm
Plan to enjoy a very special afternoon at the Printing Museum as we celebrate 25 years of the Museum’s history, activities and educational work. There will be plenty of food and refreshments to feast on, music, special demonstrations and tours through the collection, keepsakes, and more. Among the demonstrations there will be stone lithography, etching and engraving, typecasting, even the opportunity to print a broadside on the beautiful Columbian Hand Press that is celebrating its 200th Anniversary.
A special part of the afternoon activities will be the unveiling of the newly launched Building Campaign to expand and improve the Printing Museum. Guests will be able to tour the newly acquired expansion space that will double the Museum’s exhibits and programs, hear of the initiatives to build a larger theatre, add an exhibit on lithography and current technology, paper making studio, a California and World History Exhibit, a Rotating Exhibit Gallery and enlarge the Museum’s Book Arts Institute.
The Museum’s Building Campaign has been created to raise $1 million over the next two years to underwrite the expansion of the Printing Museum’s exhibits and programs and to develop an Operations Fund for the Museum’s future.
Tickets to this very special event are $100 per person (of which $50 is a tax deductible donation to the Museum’s Building Campaign). Click HERE for information on the event or to reserve your ticket. Seating is limited.
