Print Media Philosophy

Print Media Philosophy

A perpetually expanding view of printmaking through interdisciplinary practice

The Print Media department at Cranbrook is characterized by a perpetually expanding view of printmaking through interdisciplinary practice. This dynamic approach to print encourages experimentation and innovation within traditional and emerging print media. 

We define our discipline broadly, through the ideas of multiples and distribution rather than specific techniques.  Practices range from traditional etching to commercial printing to the digital tools of mass media. 

It is the space where artists engage with the materials and technologies of reproduction, with a value placed on experimentation and process. Rooted in the concept of democratic media—from Gutenberg to internet memes—Print Media prizes collaboration and diverse forms of dissemination in contemporary art and culture.

The only solely studio-based program in the country that takes a holistic approach to print, tracing a lineage that connects 7th-century Chinese woodblocks to Internet memes and Twitter.
