Brandywine Workshop and Archives is a diversity-driven cultural institution fostering creative expression through conventional and emerging technologies. Founded in 1972 as the Brandywine Graphic Workshop in the Spring Garden neighborhood of Philadelphia as a collective of artists and art teachers, BWA hosts public programs, artist residencies, and exhibitions, in addition to its permanent art collection.
A creative residency supports eight artists in the exploration of emerging printmaking techniques and related technologies, culminating in a curated exhibition at both the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Brandywine Workshop. Resident artists expand their practices and experiment with scale, materials, and tools like 3D printers and laser cutters. An illustrated catalogue along with virtual and in-person programming illuminate the artists’ creative processes from conception through final production.
The total grant amount represents project funding plus an additional 20% in unrestricted general operating support.
