Come discover treasures in Philadelphia’s special collections! Get special behind-the-scenes tours of Philadelphia institutions and see fine art prints not normally available to the public. Look at prints, learn how they were made, and learn how they are relevant to us today. Printmaking will come to life as we discover up close how artists use print processes like lithography, screen printing, and etching to make art and communicate ideas.  Look at prints from the collection of the Brodsky Center at PAFA , a collaborative handmade papermaking and printmaking center devoted to artists and creating new work since 1986. The Centers focus is on contemporary art and supporting women and artists of color. The Center empowers artists to explore, experiment, and extend boundaries by creating new work in collaboration with master printers and papermakers. Parking is available in the parking lot behind the museum, between Cherry and Race Streets. Participants will meet in the Lobby of the Hamilton Building.
