International Graphic Arts Society: Modern Prints from the Syracuse University Art Collection

May 7- August 10, 2007

The International Graphic Arts Society (IGAS) was founded in the early 1950s to support the activities of avant-garde printmakers.  Unlike other publishers of prints, IGAS used world renown curators and artists such as William Lieberman and Ben Shahn to choose the best examples for publication.  Syracuse University was a subscriber to the Society and over a period of twelve years acquired more than 380 prints by nearly 200 different artists.  This exhibition looks at some of the most innovative prints created by IGAS artists including work by Karel Appel, Carol Summers, and Shiko Munakata.
