PEOPLE POWERED PRINTS
Community and Collaboration through Printmaking
People Powered Prints ("PPP") is an educational resource created by Susanna Crum and other contributors in the Printmaking program at Indiana University Southeast's Department of Fine Arts, New Albany, IN. PPP is a platform for knowledge sharing, research, collaboration, and creativity, for artists enrolled in classes at IU Southeast and for the broader printmaking community.
Since its launch in November 2017, PPP has been steadily growing to include more content and information. That being said, this is a continuously-evolving project and is always going to change and grow. Please get in touch with questions or suggestions!
ABOUT THE STUDIO
Creating a Sustainable Art Practice
With an emphasis on communication, critical thinking, and collaboration, the Printmaking program is housed in an 1,800 square-foot laboratory-like workspace in the Fine Arts department. Through traditional and exploratory approaches to processes like intaglio, lithography, relief, and screenprinting, students explore print media’s historical and contemporary roles in visual culture. They develop ideas and concepts alongside skill and technical ability, and explore interdisciplinary research with photographic processes, book arts, digital tools, print-based sculpture, interactive artworks, and installations.
On Campus and Beyond
There are many ways to be a part of our community, including as a BFA with a Printmaking concentration, as part of a BA in Studio Arts degree, and as a Printmaking minor. In recent years, IUS printmakers have participated in workshops, national and international juried exhibitions, and conferences at the national level, and continue to build a network of fellow artists across the country.
