  • The project will create the world's largest collagraph print using donated clothes that represent a person who has battled cancer.

The nonprofit Art on Wheels announced today it was launching its biggest community art project ever -- a huge, 1,000-foot collagraph print (which would set a Guinness Book world record) that honors Richmonders affected by cancer.

A collagraph is basically a print made from an object -- and this project will use donated clothing items that represent someone who has fought cancer. They will eventually be laid out in the street en masse, inked by volunteers, and printed using a steam roller.

The project is being presented by the VCU Massey Cancer Center in conjunction with Studio Two Three and will benefit LINC (the Legal Information Network for Cancer).

"Impressions of Courage" launches with a press conference today demonstrating the collagraph-making process and raising awareness for the project, which will culminate in a day-long community festival in Scott’s Addition where the massive art project will be created.
