The Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation Lecture
Saturday, November 7
Free and Open to the public, reservations open September 1.
Park Avenue Armory
Established with the generous support of the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, this annual artist lecture aims to honor and raise public consciousness about the unique ways in which contemporary artists use printmaking in their artistic practice.
Sparked by a keen interest in the inventiveness of printmaking and carrying on a family legacy of collecting art, Jordan Schnitzer began collecting prints in 1988. Today, the family’s collection exceeds 8,000 works and its foundation manages an active lending program aimed at making fine art easily available to qualified institutions, especially those in less-served communities.
“Art makes us feel alive!” says Mr. Schnitzer. “I love prints, and getting to know the print artists, publishers, galleries, and print curators has been a highlight of my art life. I am honored to sponsor the IFPDA Print Fair artist lecture.”
Mr. Schnitzer aims to create a long and lasting impact through the arts with the significant funding he has provided for the renovation and construction of two university museums that now bear his name; the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, and The Museum of Art at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, planned for completion in 2016.
