Print Selections from the AAC Archives
September 28—October 27, 2023
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 28, 2023, 5—8pm
The Art Academy of Cincinnati is pleased to present Daydream, Sleepwalk, an exhibition featuring prints from the AAC Archives.
About the exhibition: Since 1869, the Art Academy of Cincinnati has fostered an environment of creativity for its students, one in which they can feel free to do what artists do: observe the world around them, filter it through their own thoughts and personalities, and add their marks and ideas to it through the works they then create. This fluid artistic interplay between the spaces of the world and the spaces of the mind is especially evident in the AAC Archives’ print collection, which comprises decades of works created by printmaking students. In what will become an ongoing series of exhibitions highlighting this collection, Daydream, Sleepwalk presents selected works produced over the last fifty years. Executed with a variety of printmaking techniques—screen printing, lithography, intaglio, and more—all showcase the exchange between the external and internal visions of artists as they move through the world.
