A printmaking collection spanning the last five decades, starting from the Civil Rights movement and feminism, will be on display at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art from Jan. 24 through March 29.

“Under Pressure: Contemporary Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation” contains works by over 40 artists and explores the role of printmaking. Jordan Schnitzer will speak about the collection at the museum Saturday, Jan. 24, at 11 a.m. The opening reception is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 23, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“Thanks to Jordan Schnitzler’s focused collecting and connoisseurship, this selection is truly representative of the extraordinary quality and range of media and expression possible in the printmaking field,” said Jill Hartz, the museum’s executive director. “As always, we’ll be embedding the show in K-12 and university academic curricula as well as offering educational programs for the general public that offer insights into printmaking techniques and more.“

The printmaking collection includes contemporary art pieces ranging from the Minimalism movement to Pop Art and Photorealism. Advancements in technology have allowed printmaking to expand, and the collection explores art from the 1960s through the 21st century.
