End of Times 2: The Time is Now
41 Letterpress Printers React to the Current World Climate


Show runs: Jun 22 - Aug 31









2017 FEELS LIKE THE APOCALYPSE HAS COME.

Cultural icons are dying left and right, a reality TV star has won the US presidential election, and the Chicago Cubs won the world series. This MUST be the End of Times! With all the chaos around, people are depending on us for a light in the darkness, some sign of hope, a reminder of the good things in life and what is within our grasp.

41 LETTERPRESS PRINTERS REACT TO THE CURRENT WORLD CLIMATE.

End of Times is a project that began 12/21/2012 with the first print exchange dealing with the possibility of an apocalypse with the close of the Mayan calendar. This sequel combines 20 letterpress printers from before (2012) and 21 printers from now (2017) that will bring forth a new and exciting collection of prints relating to perseverance. Letterpress Printers from around the world created an edition of 80 (8 x 10 inch) prints that capture their personal styles and reactions to the current world climate.

EXHIBITIONS WILL TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD.

Each printer created an edition of work that has been collected into multiple sets at Bruno Press, in St. Joseph, MN. Printers will receive a complete set, multiple sets will travel to exhibitions around the world and a select few will be available for purchase to continue the spirit of collaboration and lay the groundwork for the next exchange. endoftimesprints.wordpress.com

We Connect Makers, Growers & Community

To Our Customers—

As we move toward the new year, we are re-affirming our vision of Kopplin’s as a connection point for makers, growers, and community. This is demonstrated in three significant commitments:

• to organic (as well as local, ethical and sustainable) products, including all certified organic Midwest dairy

• to our employees, including livable wages since January 1, 2015 and paid time off for all staff beginning January 1, 2017

• to clarity and transparency for our customers, including an honest menu that accurately reflects our prices, which already include sales tax and gratuity

We continue to choose our products as a form of support for suppliers we believe in. We continue to offer a welcoming space to all customers and to honor the employees who shape that space for all of us.

As with all businesses, we periodically assess the price of our goods based on market factors. At Kopplin’s, we also use this assessment point as an opportunity to revisit our values and their impact on all aspects of the shop. When St. Paul passed an “Earned Sick and Safe Time” ordinance in September 2016, it became clear to us that we wanted to provide this option for our workers at the earliest opportunity, rather than waiting for our mandated implementation date in 2018. We believe that employees deserve the stability of knowing that illness or critical safety issues will not impact their ability to earn a wage.

The increase in price you see reflected on our new menu allows us to continue providing high-quality local, organic, and sustainable products. It also allows us to lay the groundwork for paid time off in 2017. Coming after two years of successful tip-free higher wages, we feel like this is a clear and positive next step to take action on our values.

As always, we thank you for joining us at the table.

Andrew & Amanda Kopplin, Owners
