On Nov. 2-3, Hatch Show Print, an iconic letterpress print shop owned and operated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, will celebrate the Grand Opening of its new location at 224 5th Ave. S.
The new Hatch Show Print location includes four spaces: the 5,800-square-foot Hatch Show Print Production Shop which features an 80-foot glass wall; the 1,400-square-foot Hatch Show Print Store, which offers original posters, custom clothing and gifts; the Hatch Show Print Haley Gallery, a 1,200-square-foot art gallery that features re-strikes of historical prints made using wood blocks from the Hatch archive; and the Print Space for Design, a classroom and workshop area that offers demonstrations, hands-on learning and programming.
Events planned for the two-day Grand Opening include a printing demonstration, an art crawl, a book signing with Hatch Show Print Master Printer Jim Sherraden, a letterpress family learning program for children ages 5 and up, a puppeteer performance of String City: Nashville’s Tradition of Music and Puppetry, and more. All programs are free and open to the public.
Hatch Show Print was founded by C.R. and H.H. Hatch in 1879. Gaylord Entertainment Co. purchased the print shop in 1986 and the following year asked the museum to curate the shop. In 1992, Gaylord donated the shop to the museum.
