MONOTHON PRINT WEEK: OCTOBER 14 – 20

Have fun raising funds at MONOTHON2018!

MONOTHON is the most important fundraising event of the year at CCP. Help support the Center with your participation and meet up with friends and colleagues, old and new, during the printmaking week in Norwalk and at the Auction & Party in New Canaan at the Carriage Barn Arts Center in Waveny Park.

MONOTHON2018 provides the opportunity for artists to work with Master Printers in art-intensive, five-hour sessions to create original monotypes. Each MONOTHON artist is assisted by a Master Printer and a Press Assistant. All materials are provided; artists may create up to ten prints during each session.

At the end of a session, one print from each artist is selected for exhibition and sale at the MONOTHON2018 Auction & Party, the celebration that is the culmination of the monotype marathon this year. The artist retains their remaining
prints. Prints chosen for exhibition and sale become the property of CCP. All proceeds from MONOTHON2018 (printing sessions and Auction) support CCP’s programs and activities.
