The institution's press release follows:
Making Community: Prints from Brandywine Workshop and Archives, Brodsky Center at PAFA, and Paulson Fontaine Press celebrates printmaking, a longstanding ever-expanding artistic form, especially at PAFA. This exhibition brings together an exceptional group of nearly one hundred artworks from PAFA's Permanent Collection, selected from nearly two hundred artworks in this medium that have recently been acquired by PAFA. Presented together, the prints contribute a compelling overview of contemporary American printmaking over the past forty years, through a rich range of traditional techniques and technologically new formats, by four generations of influential artists whose work is not frequently seen in American art museum collections.
