13. Creative Space: Fifty Years of Robert Blackburn's Printmaking Workshop

This Library of Congress exhibition presents fifty-nine works from the
Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop Archives and Collection, most of which
can be viewed online (some await copyright clearance). Master printmaker
Robert Blackburn, 1920-2003, established the Printmaking Workshop in 1948 in
New York City, becoming one of the largest and longest lasting printmaking
studios in the United States, a place where 2,000 fine prints were created
by 1,311 artists. Web exhibition visitors can view the artworks either by
starting at the checklist of objects, where prints are presented in a
chronological list, or by browsing through the sections of the exhibition,
including "Founding the Printmaking Workshop;" "A Graphics Explosion,"
primarily the 1950s and perhaps the most colorful section; "Incorporation,
Experimentation, and Outreach," from 1960s - 1980s and with works by Romare
Bearden; and "Seeds and Collaborations," tracing the far-reaching influences
of the Printmaking Workshop on both other artistic organizations and on
artists. [DS]
