Discovering Hidden Print Collections: Free Library of Philadelphia Print and Picture Collection

Come discover treasures in the Free Library of Philadelphia’s special collections! We’ll see some recent discoveries from my research in the Free Library’s Fine Art Print collection, with special emphasis on relief prints from 19th & 20th century American printmakers.

You will get special behind-the-scenes tours to see fine art prints not normally available to the public. Together we will look at prints from the past, learn how they were made, and learn how they are relevant to us today. The history of printmaking will come to life as we discover up close how artists used printmaking to make art and communicate ideas.

Please bring a notepad and something to write with.

This tour will meet at The Free Library, located at 1901 Vine Street.

All students registered for the Bill Brookover’s Discovering Printmaking workshop will automatically be enrolled in the print tours. Tour does not include transportation.
