Sixty Square Inches
16th Biennial North American Small Print Exhibition
January 7 through February 17, 2008
Stewart Center Gallery
Purdue Galleries are once again hosting the biennial Sixty Square Inches competitive biennial exhibition of small-scale contemporary printmaking. This year’s exhibit will provide the 16th review of North American graphic artists working in an intimate format.
The Galleries are committed to the practice of acquiring new works from each Sixty Square Inches exhibition and building our collection of contemporary North American printmaking while helping to support the community of modern artists. Since 1978, we have acquired 167 artworks from Sixty Square Inches exhibits for the collection. These acquisitions fuel our ongoing educational outreach programs.
The Galleries periodic printmaking exhibits feature hands-on relief printing demonstrations and presentations on the history and development of printmaking for the regional K-12 educational community.
Purdue Galleries has organized a traveling exhibition called “60 x 60,” consisting of a selection of images acquired from previous installments of this exhibit. The exhibit has been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts through its Challenge America: Reaching Every Community Invitational Initiative funding program.
