ColorPrint USA

More than forty years ago, in 1969, American printmaker Lynwood Kreneck started ColorPrint USA to bring artwork to Lubbock, Texas in the hopes of inspiring the local art community and students in the newly created art department at Texas Tech University. What was created is one of the more interesting surveys of American printmaking of the last half of the 20th century. The spirit that drove the ColorPrint USA exhibitions was openness to process, to subject, and to reinvention of what printmaking and prints can be. To those artists who were changing art after WWII this kind of embrace would have been a great inspiration to continue pushing at boundaries. Over 700 artists participated in ColorPrint USA exhibitions over its four decades. Approximately half of these artists are represented in the museum’s ColorPrint collection, a collection that served as a catalyst for the AP/RC.
