FREE FAMILY MORNINGS: Create your own cyanotype print with artist Robin Cone-Murakami

Saturday, June 8th, 2019 from 10am – 1pm

Washington County Museum, located on the PCC Rock Creek Campus:

17677 NW Springville Rd., Portland, OR, 97229

Learn to create one-of-a-kind handmade cyanotype prints! Developed in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, the cyanotype is a camera-less photographic printing process that uses a light sensitive emulsion to create a cyan-blue print. Harnessing the power of the sun, we will arrange objects and botanical specimens on paper to create beautiful unique prints. Materials will be provided however participants are encouraged to bring their own small objects to experiment with.

Robin Cone-Murakami is an artist from Honolulu, Hawaii. She works in sculpture, photography, sound and installation to examine the intimate link between humanity and nature. Growing up in a city expanding within a complex island ecosystem, her work deals with the changing landscape the world faces in contemporary society. She has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout Oregon including McMinnville, Ashland and Portland. In 2018, she was a low-resident artist at Leland Ironworks in Oregon City. She moved to Portland in 2017 and is a Master in Fine Arts in Visual Studies candidate at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
