The Many More print exchange portfolio celebrates the numerous ways prints can be made and shared. The portfolio was generated from an open call to printmakers and print lovers throughout the United States. Each participant sent in one or two print editions and, in exchange, will receive a portfolio of prints by other participants. The full portfolio will be on display at the museum, highlighting how sharing and creating community are inherent in printmaking.
