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 9,000 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.
