The University Art Museum’s permanent collection includes a rich selection of 19th and 20th century prints that engage with socio/political themes. Printmaking, which involves transferring an image from an inked plate to paper, allows for the production of multiples. The prints in this exhibition reflect a long history of utilizing the graphic arts to reflect and communicate political and social messages and issues of historical and contemporary importance. The exhibition will feature works by the renowned mid-19th century artist Honoré Daumier, the post-war work of New York Times illustrator Richard Mock, and the contemporary prints of Enrique Chagoya among others.
