This choice selection of a decade of printmaking by Martin Puryear highlights a lesser-known aspect of an African-American artist more often known for his sculpture. Often referencing his areas of personal interest, Puryear’s prints include images of furniture design, basketry, and international travel.
Organized by the Cincinnati Art Museum.
