Graphicstudio is a university-based atelier engaged in a unique experiment in art and education. Founded in 1968 as a non-profit art making facility, Graphicstudio is committed to research and the application of traditional and new techniques for the production of limited edition prints and sculpture multiples.
James Rosenquist, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Vik Muniz, Kiki Smith and other leading contemporary artists have been invited to work in collaboration with expert artisans in our studios to create works on paper and editions of sculptures in a variety of materials. Ongoing research by Graphicstudio has been remarkably productive and many new processes and treatments of traditional methods have been developed such as waxtype (encaustic screen printing) and heliorelief (a photographic woodblock process). Graphicstudio editions have been acquired by leading museums including the Museum of Modern Art, the New York Public Library and the Whitney Museum of American Art. The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the USF Contemporary Art Museum maintain complete archives of Graphicstudio editions. Graphicstudio also offers a Subscription Program.
Graphicstudio with the Contemporary Art Museum and the Public Art Program form the Institute for Research in Art in the College of The Arts at the University of South Florida.
