STAMP YOUR OWN HISTORY

 Dano Wall                    Christine Dixon

Make your own Harriet Tubman stamp with artist Dano Wall

Special performance by "Harriet Tubman Herself" Christine Dixon

Saturday, June 22  2-6 PM

Futureworks Makerspace 

Brooklyn Army Terminal

Up to 4 persons may attend for a $20 ticket and you will make one stamp per group. (Additional stamps are $20 each)

Join us for a family friendly event celebrating Harriet Tubman!  Learn and see how the Harriet Tubman stamp is made. You will assemble your own 3D printed handle and laser cut stamp that you can take home.  Bring your own $20 bills to stamp and keep.  There will also be a short performance of the show "Harriet Tubman Herself" by Christine Dixon.

 

Meet Dano Wall, the artist who came up with the idea for the Harriet Tubman stamp in order to express his disappointment over the decision of the Treasury Secretary that Harriet Tubman's image would not make it on to the $20 bill until 2028.
