Flat File: Prints From the Herron Collection


The medium of printmaking and the Herron School of Art and Design have a long and storied history together, with the program tracing it’s roots back to the 1940’s. Through the decades the program has produced a number of nationally and internationally renowned artists, played a role in the reemergence of lithography as an art form and has hosted visiting artists in every stage of their careers. Flat File: Prints From The Herron Collection seeks to showcase prime examples of a medium that has helped shape the history of Herron and art in Indianapolis. The prints featured are examples of work produced by students and professional artists alike. The heavy impressions of etchings and the fluid marks and rich color of lithographs are characteristics of a medium that has long inspired a number or artists and viewers and lent itself to every era of history.

The closing reception will include live lithography printing.
