reThink INK: Impact and Innovation in Contemporary Printmaking

On April 24, 2012, the Boston Public Library and Mixit Print Studio welcomed three distinguished scholars and experts to explore the role of printmaking in art today in a lively panel discussion.  Topics included the impact of digital technology on the conception and execution of contemporary printmaking, current institutional collection and curatorial practices for prints, and the continuing influence of printmaking on other media.
