Utah Arts Council Traveling Exhibition Now at SUU
March 01, 2007
“Colorprint USA--Spanning the States in ’98,” a Utah Arts Council Traveling Exhibit is now on display in the Sherratt Library at Southern Utah University, through March 6.
Colorprint USA is a national printmaking exhibition comprised of 50 prints from 50 artists from all 50 states. In 1998, the University of Texas Tech collected the prints and made a portfolio for every state, and each state displayed the exhibition at the same time. Utah artist Wayne Kimball was a part of this project.
The Traveling Exhibition Program has been fortunate to be loaned pieces of this show from the Museum of Fine Art of Brigham Young University. Over the last several decades, the boundaries of the printmaking world have blurred to include many different variations on this well established discipline, and this exhibition showcases these wonderful differences while at the same time honors the strength of the traditional means of printing.
This Exhibition was made possible also through grants from the Helen Jones Foundation and the CH Foundation. A statewide outreach service of the Utah Arts Council, the Traveling Exhibition Program provides schools, museums, libraries and galleries throughout the state with a variety of exhibitions. Additionally, support comes from programming funds from the Utah Arts Council and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Washington D.C.
