Art enthusiasts and printmaking fans in particular don't just want to enjoy meaningful imagery on their walls, on their shirts and in public spaces — they want to see printmaker genius in the sky, on their bicycles and even imprinted on their food. As St. Louis continues to roll out the red-printed carpet for the 2011 Southern Graphics Council International Conference, many of these dreams of art-all-around manifest tonight along Cherokee Street. At the Casa Loma Ballroom (3354 Iowa Avenue), Printa Kucha presentations take over from 7:30 to 9 p.m.; artists have less than seven minutes each to show twenty works. And from 5 to 10 p.m. outside of the Don Carlos Restaurant (2800 Cherokee Street), Eric Woods of St. Louis' Firecracker Press and others will be serving up tacos made with printed tortillas, featuring images of the characters who help make Cherokee a thriving community — yum! Plus, Kristen Bartel will be powering her bike/printing press, Hotoff-Press, around the nabe, and many, many of the art spaces up and down the street will have their doors flung wide and their walls covered with works.
