Five-color lithograph on paper, 20 x 16 inches. Edition III/VI. June Wayne Collection for the Brodsky Center at PAFA.

The Brodsky Center at PAFA empowers artists to explore, experiment, and extend boundaries by creating new work in collaboration with collaborative printers and papermakers. Since its founding in 1986 by Judith K. Brodsky, it has purposely and proudly engaged artists of color and women artists as well as other underrepresented communities. With a commitment to Philadelphia’s diverse neighborhoods, the Brodsky Center advances PAFA’s reach locally and internationally by educating students, promoting the singular work and innovative ideas of influential artists, and inviting all audiences to appreciate the relevance of paper and print in contemporary arts and culture.

A powerful and resourceful environment that includes hand papermaking and printmaking studios, the Brodsky Center collaborates with artists who engage printmaking and papermaking as indispensable mediums for the expression of unique ideas and are either new to print and paper or use them as equal tools along with painting, sculpture, and new media. They include Elizabeth Catlett, Jonathan Lyndon Chase, David Driskell, Chitra Ganesh, Sam Gilliam, Mona Hatoum, Sharon Hayes, Barkley L. Hendricks, William Kentridge, Pepón Osorio, Nell Painter, Jaune Quick-To-See Smith, Faith Ringgold, Miriam Schapiro, Kiki Smith, Pat Steir, Mickalene Thomas, June Wayne, and Didier William, among others.

In 2002, artist and printmaker June Wayne (1918–2011) donated a collection of her prints along with prints she had collected by other artists to support the Brodsky Center through their sale. These prints were made at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop, which Wayne founded in 1960 on Tamarind Avenue in Los Angeles with art historian and artist Clinton Adams and collaborative printer Garo Antreasian. Tamarind moved to the University of New Mexico in 1970 and became one of the most important focal points for the revival of printmaking in the United Sates and beyond.
