Experimental Printmaking Institute

“EPI has been passionately committed to advancing the printmaking process as a dynamic and relevant art form for purposes of cultural and creative engagement. The inherent nature of the printmaking medium encourages a communal participation by artists and students alike. EPI uses traditional printmaking techniques in concert with experimental approaches as a means of expanding our visual language. This approach to image making offers us a perfect metaphor in a world of dynamic and diverse values and perspectives.”

—Curlee Raven Holton, David M. ’70 and Linda Roth Professor of Art; Director of the Experimental Printmaking Institute
