Steamroller Print Event 2023

The WFMA hosted the museum’s first ever steamroller event. A steamroller event is where printmakers ditch their printing presses to go outside and print using an industrial steamroller!

The WFMA invited art teachers and their students from Rider High School, Wichita Falls High School, Nocona High School, Barwise Jr. High, Kirby Jr. High, and McNiel Jr. High to participate in the event. The students were introduce to the process of relief printing using woodblocks. Participants were invited to carve wooden plates in various sizes and imagery. For the majority of participants, this was their first ever experience with printmaking! Other participants included WFMA staff, MSU Alumni, and MSU Printmaking students.

The event was held at Midwestern State University in the printmaking studio of the Fain Fine Arts department. Over 60 people stopped by to see the action! We printed both inside the studio and outside with the steamroller. A big thank you to United Rentals for providing the steamroller and WFISD and Midwestern State University Fain Fine Arts department for your contributions. All of the artwork made at this event will become a part of the Wichita Falls Museum of Art’s collection.

Alebrijes at the WFMA

Led by Teaching Artist Auria Sánchez-Henríquez

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, teaching artist Auria Sánchez-Henríquez will work with participants to create sculptures inspired by alebrijes. Alebrijes, often depicted in Spanish folk art, are “spirit animals” that guide the spirits of ancestors on their journey through the land of the dead. Through the exploration of 3D artistic techniques, line, and color, the project will illuminate the connection among visual language, self-expression, and cultural tradition. Celebrate the culmination of this experience alongside at the Día de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead Festival in downtown Wichita Falls this fall.

Fain Elementary School 5th Grade Art Students
Led by Teaching Artist Daniel Juarez

During the first three weeks of the fall semester, artist Daniel Juarez taught the 5th-grade art students at Fain Elementary concepts of Abstract Expressionism, inspired by works in the WFMA Permanent Collection.
