They say a picture tells a thousand words. One exhibit is acting as the ultimate storyteller of how printmaking broke through as a respected art form. “Proof: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California” features a collection from the Norton Simon Museum with works from local founders of this movement. It all started with the Tamarind Lithography Workshop, which aimed to create a group of master lithographers who would revive the art form.
Now more than a half century later, you can explore the history of this creative outlet and where it might go from here.
