Detroit is the epitome of the “altered landscape”; the city is undergoing massive physical and economic reconstruction and redefinition. Printmaking holds the possibility of adjusting itself to adapt to particular circumstances, and in a city that is doing just that, artists who use print media in Detroit are establishing contemporary models for print production. The panel includes artists, researchers, professors and publishers dedicated to contemporary printmaking in the Detroit area.
