The Rise of the Graphic Image: 100 years of Printmaking in America

Exhibition Website

Jul 15 2016 - Oct 2 2016

If you ever wanted to know the difference between an etching and a lithograph; if you ever were curious about silk screen prints versus woodcuts; or, if you never realized that the term “print” meant an original, hand-made, work of art transfered to paper by a “printmaker”, then you will need to see this exciting historical look deep inside the MMAA collection of graphic artworks. 

The Rise of the Graphic Image will leave you spellbound by the processes that artists have pioneered to create images on wood, blocks of stone, or metal plates from 1880 to 1980, to be able to transfer them with ink to paper. This exhibit has been curated from the museum’s holdings of over 700 graphic works on paper and represents some of the most important artists in history.
