Discovering Hidden Print Collections: Philadelphia Museum of Art

We’ll be visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Abigail Rebecca Cohen Study Room at the Center for Prints, Drawings, and Photographs in the Museum’s Perelman Building. We’ll be looking at a selection of screenprints from the Museum’s collection, WPA, Warhol and more!

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, screen printing, and etching to make art and communicate ideas.

The tour will meet at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Perelman Building, 2525 Pennsylvania Ave, Philadelphia. All students registered for the Bill Brookover’s Discovering Printmaking workshop will automatically be enrolled. Tour does not include transportation.
