528.0 Regional Juried Printmaking Exhibition
May 26 – July 22, 2017
In May 2017, CVA hosted the 528.0 Regional Juried Printmaking Exhibition sponsored by The Invisible Museum. Using the symbolic 5280 elevation of the mile-high city, the call for entry was open to artists residing within a 528.0 mile radius of Denver. Works included hand-pulled prints and intaglio, lithography, relief, silkscreen, or experimental methods.
Celebrating the expansive diversity of contemporary printmaking found in our western region, 528.0 featured 96 works by 58 artists and was on view at CVA from May 26 through July 22, 2017.
