NINE NEBRASKANS

Nine Nebraskan Artists were invited to design and carve their own woodblock for printing impressions at Constellation Studios, which took place in May 2020 with one-by-one printing sessions at the studio. The 9 large 24”x 36” black and white prints made a composite mural that was wheat-pasted around Lincoln at nine

locations. The presentation was 108” tall x 72” wide.

This year's Nine Nebraskans have been selected and will be announced in May 2022!

The artwork is a temporary installation, with the paper prints attached with wheat starch (wallpaper) paste to the wall surface. The installation will be affected by weather and moisture, lasting from approximately 2 months, and will be allowed to change, as part of the ephemeral nature of the materials, the climate conditions, and time.


Nine different sites are planned and will present engagement for different viewing audiences and experiences, plus create a recurrent connection throughout the city.


These woodblock prints are unusually striking for the strong contrast of dark and light, the captured energy of the carving marks, and the variety of images and symbols that convey timely messages and layers of meaning.



A culminating event will be steamroller printing of these blocks at the LUX Center for the Arts on August 20.

Other artists are invited to join with additional woodblocks for the steamroller printing demonstration. For further information, please contact:
