Description

Chicago Printmakers Collaborative (CPC) is the area’s longest running independent printmaking workshop. The former Penn Dutchman Antiques building was recently renovated with a beautiful skylight and rooftop deck, and provides facilities for traditional print media, including etching, stone lithography, relief, book arts and screen printing. The CPC gallery features fine art prints from around the world--from concert posters to cityscapes--that showcase the compelling beauty of the hand-inked impression.

Visitor Experience

Join in the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative! Explore CPC's home, including--weather permitting--snacks on the printmaker rooftop party deck. In addition to live etching and screenprinting demonstrations by artists whose work centers on architectural themes, visitors will have the opportunity to make something themselves to take home.
