Philagrafika: Philadelphia's International Festival Celebrating Print in Contemporary Art

Today, the idea of a "print" is so ubiquitous that many people take it for granted, or don't think of it as relevant to art. Philagrafika, an international festival in Philadelphia showcasing the role of printmaking in contemporary art, aims to shatter those attitudes. On this week's News and Views, Susan Lewis explores Philagrafika 2010, which includes over 300 artists and 80 Philadelphia-area venues. The festival runs until April 11, 2010.

Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and contributes weekly intermission interviews for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
