THE ENDLESS SCROLL 
A Participatory Art Experience with Artist Karl Orozco

Help create an “endless scroll”—a continuous sheet of paper stamped with multiple patterns and designs by guests using artist Karl Orozco’s hand-carved mahjong set as printmaking blocks. The resulting work of art will be an uninterrupted record of prints that signify lucky seasons, time, and the elements.
