About
"The Atelier Project is a collection of sixteen prints by distinguished American artists. In this respect, it is similar to dozens of other print editions. But in every other way it is different – qualitatively different. The Project was a not-for-profit venture conceived and executed by the Division of Visual Arts of the State University of New York at Purchase. It was meant primarily to be a teaching tool, making available to students a variety of today’s most provocative and accomplished artists as lecturers and role models. Students were also able to observe more than half of the visiting artists producing their prints and at times could assist them. It was with this last activity in mind that I enlisted the help of a Graduate Seminar in preparing this introduction." – Irving Sandler
