A donation of 46 contemporary American prints was given to the UMCA collection by Richard Gerrig in memory of his sister Risa Gerrig, a UMass alumna (BA, 1981).
These prints represent all manner of special processes and innovative techniques in printmaking, such as use of linen and cotton pulp, paint, and photo-luminescent inks; black and white, and colored lithography; creative integration of collage and cut paper; incorporation of photographic images into digital prints; screen printing; and many others. Artists include Kiki Smith, Richard Artschwager, Polly Apfelbaum, James Rosenquist, Ed Ruscha, and John Wesley, as well as numerous emerging artists.
