Printmaking Legacy Project

Presented by the Printmaking Legacy Project®

Printmaking Legacy Project’s® first national print exhibition, Forward Press: 21st Century Printmaking features ten innovative print artists from across the country who employ the finest examples of hand printed and digital techniques. They explore themes of culture, identity, religion, environment, memory, and art history. Some work in traditional forms, like lithography, intaglio, relief, and screen printing, while others explore these methods as the basis for large-scale sculpture, collage, and integrating technology into printmaking. These ten artists are changing the way American printmaking is seen and understood.
