Discovering Hidden Print Collections: Free Library of Philadelphia
Come discover treasures in Philadelphia’s special collections! You will get special behind-the-scenes tours of Philadelphia institutions, where you will see fine art prints and printed ephemera, 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 print processes like lithography, screenprinting, and etching to make art and communicate ideas.
The tour does not include transportation. Please bring a notepad and something to write with.
