Join Associate Curator Ann Cannon for a lunch followed by a tour of the special exhibit, Imprinted: The American Painter-Etcher Movement.

The American Painter-Etcher Movement, also known as the Etching Revival, sought to re-establish public appreciation for etching and counter the popular view—pervasive by the mid-19th century—that engraving was solely a way to make affordable reproductions of artwork.
