PrintFest is a dynamic, three-day event hosted by IPCNY for MFA students and BFA seniors to exhibit, sell, and trade their prints. PrintFest provides these emerging artists the opportunity to show their work to a broad audience of collectors, publishers, artists, curators, and IPCNY members. Open to the public during New York’s annual Print Week, PrintFest attracts locals and out-of-towners visiting Chelsea galleries and the nearby Editions/Arists’ Book Fair, among other events. This year IPCNY has expanded PrintFest to include eighteen schools and additional programming.
