Works on Paper Series, Part II: Prints from the Center for Innovative Print and Paper at Rutgers University and Normal Editions Workshop at Illinois State University
The Tweed Museum of Art, University of Minnesota Duluth is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition featuring a variety of original prints created at two university-affiliated print studios. "Works on Paper Series, Part II: Prints from the Center for Innovative Print and Paper at Rutgers University and Normal Editions Workshop at Illinois State University" opens January 18, 1999 and continues through April 2, 2000.
Established in 1987, the Center for Innovative Print and Paper is affiliated with Rutger's University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and is the only professional printmaking facility in the state. Reflected in the prints on view in the Tweed exhibition is the Center's focus on women artists and artists of color, who are invited there to collaborate with its professional printers. Normal Editions Workshop (N.E.W.) is located in Normal, Illinois and is affiliated with Illinois State University. Since its inception in 1976, N.E.W. has functioned as a professional printmaking studio, working with artists from the midwest and from around the country. The selection of prints from N.E.W. in the Tweed exhibition were created by nationally-known artists whose work was exhibited at University Galleries at Illinois State University, including Kiki Smith, Dennis Oppenheim, David Wojnarowicz and Kenny Scharf. Shown together, the works from these two presses represent a variety of printmaking techniques, as well as a wide range of contemporary themes, subjects and imagery. Prints in the exhibition will be available for sale to the public.

The year 2000 marks the 50th Year Anniversary of the Tweed Museum of Art. The Works on Paper Series is comprised of five exhibitions featuring works on paper, including works created at presses around the country, and works from Tweed's permanent collections. In the context of its 50th Anniversary, these shows highlight the significant role that prints and other works on paper have had and continue to have in building the outstanding collections of historical and contemporary art the Tweed Museum of Art holds in trust for the public.
