Focusing on the later period of his career, From Process to Print explores Romare Bearden’s graphic oeuvre from the 1960s though the early 1980s. This nationally traveling exhibition focuses on the artist’s innovative printmaking techniques and sheds new light on his sources of inspiration and process. Organized by the Bearden foundation, it includes 84 lithographs, etchings, collagraphs, collagraph plates, screenprints, drypoints, monotypes, and engravings produced over three decades by Bearden, proof (if more were needed) that he was more than an artist "who ran with scissors."
