Persuasive Prints

Prints from the CU Art Museum’s collection demonstrate how artists and printmakers combine image, text and technique to persuade viewers. Curated by graduate students in CU’s museum practicum seminar, this exhibition brings together engravings, etchings, lithographs and woodcuts created from the 1500s to today. While some of the works are designed to sway public opinion by expressing official or institutional views, others are more subtle in their approach, expressing personal opinion or perspective. In this cross section of images, the curators ask how do prints communicate with viewers? How has printmaking contributed overtime to a public dialogue?

This exhibition and programming is generously supported by CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees and CU Art Museum members.
