Kyle Durrie ’01 Hits The Road With Mobile Printing Project

Nobody likes to spin their wheels, but artist Kyle Durrie ’01 developed a unique way to jumpstart her creative slump. Durrie is in the midst of a nine-month cross-country adventure as an itinerant letterpress operator.

Driving a 1982 Chevy step van outfitted with a fully functional print shop, Durrie is driving from town to town doing printing demos and teaching workshops in fine letterpress printing.

She made a curbside stop in Brunswick recently as part of her Bowdoin Artist Talk, “Moveable Type: Cross-Country Adventures in Printing.”
