Founded by Allan Edmunds in Philadelphia in 1972, the Brandywine Workshop and Archives provides a fertile environment for artists from diverse backgrounds to create cutting-edge prints. Reflecting on 50 years of artist residencies, educational outreach, and community building, Edmunds will discuss highlights from Brandywine’s history and share goals for new projects ahead.

A related exhibition, Prints from the Brandywine Workshop and Archives: Creative Communities, is on view at the Harvard Art Museums from March 4 through July 31, 2022.
