Discovering Hidden Print Collections: The Print Center
Come explore a special exhibition of prints by contemporary American artist Martin Puryear at The Print Center. Martin Puryear Prints: 1962 – 2016 explores his body of work in printmaking, which parallels his more well-known work in sculpture. This exhibition is in conjunction with the Association for Public Art’s installation of Puryear’s temporary monumental work Big Bling in Philadelphia in June.
The Print Center, a nonprofit gallery located in Philadelphia’s historic Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, encourages the growth and understanding of photography and printmaking as vital contemporary arts through exhibitions, publications and educational programs. The Print Center programs include solo and group exhibitions; the Artists-in-Schools Program, a nationally recognized program bringing art education and awareness to under-served youth in Philadelphia public high schools since 2002; and the Gallery Store, offering the largest selection of contemporary prints and photographs available for sale in Philadelphia.
Please bring a notepad and something to write with.
This tour will meet at The Print Center, 1614 Latimer 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.
