The Art Students League is hosting a free evening program with artists Justin Sanz and Chakaia Booker in conversation about League artist, printmaker, and instructor Robert Blackburn and his legacy. The program will take place on Tuesday, February 21 from 6-7pm, at Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery (215 W 57 Street, 2nd Floor).

Robert Blackburn is known for his trailblazing career as well as his commitment to creating space where racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse artists can thrive. His work lives on at The Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop (RBPMW), where today’s artists find both community and collaboration.

In this discussion between artists Justin Sanz and Chakaia Booker, visitors will learn about the RBPMW, the relationship between artist and printer, and how Blackburn’s legacy continues to define the dynamic nature of printmaking for contemporary artists.
