This exhibition unites prints made by women in the 20th and 21st centuries. As prints became an increasingly popular avenue for experimentation, female artists were drawn to printmaking. Many of the exhibition’s featured artists are better known for their paintings, sculptures or drawings. In their prints, they mined the medium’s unique visual and material qualities to exchange, explore and develop their artistic ideas.

This exhibition is part of the CU 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.
