For centuries\, printmaking has been considered the most dem ocratic art form. The invention of the Gutenberg press during the Renaissan ce allowed information to be disseminated to the masses so everyone could b e literate\, not just officials of the church and the wealthy. Being issued in multiples also allows prints to be more affordable than one-of-a-kind w orks\; thus more people can have art in their homes. Artists have used prin ts to spread their ideas\, political\, personal and social\, to broader aud iences.

\n

Weiss has included artists for this exhibition who demonstr ate a commitment to social activism through their art\, teaching\, communit y organizing\, and collaborations. Some of these artists work on environmen tal issues\, some with the disenfranchised and homeless\; others work to pr otect animal rights. Each artist is also highly accomplished and well regar ded. Weiss feels that the temporary location of PVAC in the old Border Book s space with large galleries and classrooms is the perfect environment to e ncourage discourse on the meaning of art in our lives.
