PRINTFEST 2018

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. PRINTFEST provides these emerging artists with a professional setting in which to show their work to a broad audience of collectors, publishers, artists, and curators visiting Chelsea galleries and the nearby IFPDA and Editions/Artists’ Book fairs. 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. PRINTFEST 2018 will be held in memory of IPCNY founding trustee and educator Leonard Lehrer.
