Print Renaissance: Mid-century Masters of American Printmaking
September 24 - October 16, 2021

The founding of new print studios in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s led to a resurgence of printmaking. As artists began working alongside skilled printmakers, lithographs and silkscreens grew increasingly popular as more affordable options for collecting original works. Artists, including Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Frank Stella and Robert Rauschenberg, integrated printmaking into their artistic practices. This exhibition features these artists and more in a celebration of 20th-century masters of American printmaking. Visitors will learn about printmaking techniques and this important chapter in American art history.

Print Renaissance features 18 artworks and is part of the University of Colorado Art Museum’s Polly and Mark Addison Outreach Exhibition Program, through which the museum works with Colorado cultural institutions to tour art exhibitions curated from works of art Polly and Mark Addison donated to the museum. The Outreach Exhibition Program is supported by the Office of the Chancellor.
