It enables artists from diverse backgrounds and women artists to create new work in collaboration with master printers and master papermakers, in a variety of techniques. Its mission aligns uniquely with the mission of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) to educate students and to develop and promote the work of innovative artists. Since its founding in 1986, it has published over 500 editions, which are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, PAFA, Victoria & Albert Museum, Bibliothèque nationale de France, and Stadtmuseum Berlin, among others, and many private collections.
