Planned in conjunction with an innovative new Studio Seminar that pairs the practice of printmaking with the study of the history of the medium, this show invites viewers to examine prints in their cultural roles, including prints as representations of other works of art, representations of shared religious or social values, and vehicles for social and political critique. Works on display include prints by Rembrandt van Rijn, Albretcht Dürer, Honoré Daumier, Edgar Degas, Käthe Kollwitz, Andy Warhol, Hung Liu, and Sue Coe.

Pressing Issues was organized by Lisa Bulawsky, associate professor of art, and Elizabeth Childs, associate professor of art history and archaeology.
