checklist for Part 1 |  checklist for Part 2  | History of EPI by Julie L. McGee

Since its founding in 1996, the Experimental Printmaking Institute (EPI) has passionately advocated for printmaking as an indispensable component of cultural and creative engagement. Combining traditional printmaking techniques with experimental approaches, EPI is committed to advancing this dynamic art form and expanding our visual language. At the heart of this groundbreaking program are artists’ residencies that to date have yielded more than 350 editions by artists such as Faith Ringgold, Richard Anuszkiewicz, David C. Driskell, Grace Hartigan, and Sam Gilliam. This two-part exhibition is a celebration of EPI’s creative impact and the vision of its founding director, master printmaker and David M. ’70 and Linda Roth Professor of Art, Curlee Raven Holton.

An illustrated history of EPI is in production. If you would like to receive one, please contact Wendy Sterling.
