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

Exhibition Dates: January 31 - March 25, 2005

Robert Blackburn (1920 - 2003) changed the course of American art through his graphic work and the Printmaking Workshop, which he founded in New York City in 1948. His pioneering contribution to the development of abstract color lithography is legendary. Creative Space includes a key selection of Blackburn’s own work as well as a dazzling array of prints by students and noted collaborators and colleagues since the 1940s.

This is a Library of Congress exhibition realized in collaboration with International Print Center New York (IPCNY) and the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts.

This exhibition is on display in conjunction with Black Artists: Community & Context, a Columbia College Chicago festival celebrating African heritage.
