PRINTFEST is a three-day fair hosted by IPCNY for MFA and senior BFA students to exhibit, sell, and trade their prints during New York’s annual Print Week.

The universities' booths are complemented by workshops and demos, as well as a panel discussion with artists and art professionals about career paths to pursue after art school.
