The first benefit print in the Baltimore Contemporary Print Fair’s 32-year history is now available! Proceeds from the sale will benefit the BMA’s acquisition funds and MICA’s artist residency programs.
During an artist residency at MICA this past February, Trenton Doyle Hancock used the iconic Globe Poster Company’s wood type to create the limited edition screenprint with letterpress. Only 100 impressions, $200 each, are available. Reserve your impression today at Dolphin Press & Print at MICA. Your print will be waiting for you at the fair.
