Atelier 17 was a collaborative print center located in Paris that had a major impact on contemporary printmaking.  Organized and operated by S.W. Hayter, the Atelier was driven to relocate to NYC during World War II where it reshaped American thinking about the graphic arts. SUArt’s series of events will feature special lectures by Domenic Iacono (Director, SUArt Galleries), Joann Moser (Senior Curator, Smithsonian American Art Museum), Christina Weyl (Freelance Curator), and Andrew Raftery (Professor, Rhode Island School of Design).

Sponsored, in part, by the Syracuse University Humanities Center in the College of Arts and Sciences as a part of the Syracuse Symposium™ Place.
