Spanning the sixteenth century to the present, this exhibition explores the breadth of the Gibbes print collection while focusing on the specific processes used to create the works. To help make connections between technique and the finished product, the installation pairs prints with rarely exhibited plates, blocks, and printmaking tools from the museum archives. Featured artists include master printmakers Albrecht Dürer, James Whistler, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and Kara Walker, among others.
