It's NOTSTOCK at Minot State!

Dave DeVries

The Monster Engine Book: An experiment with children's art

Local artist Ben Daggett of  Rulesome

Twin Cities artist DWITT

A variety of options for your screenprinting pleasure!

Once again, the MSU Art Department presents NOTSTOCK! If you get the chance, stop by the Beaver Dam at MSU for an event filled with music and art. This year showcases numerous local musicians and artists, along with nationally known poster and comic artists from across the U.S.

I thought the most interesting find this year was the work of Dave DeVries and The Monster Engine in which he takes a child's drawing and interprets it into his own version. I love this concept! It's so fantastical! (is that a word?) Anyway, Dave teamed up with NOTSTOCK and area elementary schools and will be transforming one child's "Monster Beaver" into a painting that will be auctioned off, with proceeds going toward a flood family. You can meet Dave and see the children's drawings at this year's event.

Along with music and poster art, you can purchase a t-shirt and choose from numerous designs and screen print your very own!
