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 15 th 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 154 artworks from Sixty Square Inches exhibits for the collection. These acquisitions fuel our ongoing educational outreach programs.

“60 X 60” Traveling exhibition 
With the assistance of a Challenge America: Reaching Every Community Invitational Initiative grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Purdue Galleries is organizing and promoting a traveling exhibition entitled “60 X 60,” consisting of a selection of images acquired from previous Sixty Square Inches exhibits. Bookings for the traveling schedule are now being accepted. 

Rental fee: $1,500 per venue, to be applied to the cost of producing a full-color printed catalogue of the exhibition. Each venue will receive 100 copies of the catalogue; additional copies can be purchased with prior arrangements at cost.

Shipping: Participating venues will be responsible for arranging shipment and the costs associated with transporting the exhibition pieces to the next venue (US only). 

Space requirements: About 250 linear feet of exhibition space. Exhibitors must provide adequate insurance during their shipping commitment and while the artwork is in house. Exhibitors are also expected to provide experienced art handlers for installation and a secure, limited-access gallery space.
