Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts receives $500,000 naming gift for Printmaking Shop

The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts announced a generous $500,000 gift from Julie Jensen Bryan and Robert Bryan to name the PAFA Printmaking Shop. This transformative commitment by the Bryans, longtime supporters of PAFA and its students, ensures that printmaking will remain one of the school's core artistic disciplines.

The Bryans' gift bolsters PAFA's ability to provide the highest level of artistic training through its state-of-the-art printmaking shop and innovative programs, continue its legacy of educating generations of artists, and ensure the ongoing relevance and contemporary potential of this vital artistic medium.

Located on the sixth floor of the Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building, the Julie Jensen Bryan and Robert Bryan Printmaking Shop provides students with the equipment and personalized instruction to gain mastery in an array of printmaking forms, including woodcut and relief, etching, dry point and other intaglio processes, plate and stone lithography, as well as screenprinting, letterpress, book arts, and digital media.

The Bryan Printmaking Shop is also home to exciting events and programs, such as the Annual Student Print Sale and PAFA PRESS, which sponsors collaborative edition printing and other experimental print programs in partnership with professional artists and faculty master printers.
