From its earliest form, printmaking has been a way to document, communicate, and convey written and visual information. To celebrate that printmaking is very much alive in what has become a very digital world, Purchase announces PurchasePrintWeek 2013.
A week-long series of printmaking events will be held from September 30 to October 4 here on campus. Most of the events will take part in the Visual Arts Building. Activities include demonstrations, lectures, hands-on workshops, and receptions.

"The PurchasePrintWeek activities offer a fantastic opportunity for the community of Purchase College and the community at large to experience the visual art medium of prints," said Stella Ebner, an assistant professor in the School of Art+Design, who is spearheading the initiative.
PrintWeek 2013 will kick off with a presence at the prestigious NY Art Book Fair, September 19 to 22 at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, NY. There, art books created by Purchase College students, faculty and alumni will be displayed and offered for sale, and Professor Warren Lehrer will present a keynote address, discussing his book works, from his classics of typographic and design experimentation French Fries, I Mean You Know, to Crossing the BLVD.
