This event is free and open to the public. The Studio Center is located at 131 W. North Ave.

Then, join us on Saturday, November 23rd, for an Open House & Print Sale at BPS! Meet Brad and pick his brain about typography, printing, the midwest, whatever! Enjoy a hot beverage and check out some of his fantastic work for sale. This event is also free and open to everyone.
