In January 2018, Extra Virgin Press brought its talented interns to Little Haiti Cultural Center to print with MDCPS teachers and teaching artists from PAMM. This vital neighborhood hub has workshops in silkscreen printing, a gallery, community artists, and visiting artists such as Extra Virgin Press and Thom Wheeler.
Extra Virgin Press was at Little Haiti Cultural Center in May 2018 for the Little Haiti Book Festival. Interns gave printmaking demonstrations with a table top letterpress. Two posters were created and printed on the letterpress for the Little Haiti Book Festival.
