Exhibit Opening of Block Prints by Everett Ruess

Moab Museum Members are invited to join us for an opening reception for a temporary exhibition entitled Block Prints by Everett Ruess, a Utah Department of Arts & Museums’ traveling exhibition which includes a selection of block prints created by artist and writer, Everett Ruess, depicting his travels throughout the western United States in the early 20th century. Running from November 11th through February at the Moab Museum, the prints included in the exhibition are among those he created during the five years period prior to his disappearance in the Escalante canyons in 1934, including travels between the Californian coast, the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the canyon lands of Utah and Arizona.

We will be holding a printmaking demonstration, and attendees will have the opportunity to use historic printing materials from the Times-Independent newspaper to make their own notecard or bookmark!
