This exhibition brings together many parts of the Northwestern University community and showcases its vast resources. An educational section explaining the printmaking process was organized under the supervision of Bill Cass, a Chicago graphic artist, and Head of the Print Studio, Department of Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern. Carl Johnson, Head of Scenic Design at the Department of Theatre and Speech will use a painted scrim of a Hogarth print to create a period interior. A virtual exhibition, created jointly by the curators of the exhibition, the Block Gallery, and the Multimedia Center will be mounted on the internet for visitors around the world. Finally, the exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see a large body of works that belong to the Special Collections of the Northwestern University Library, the Mary and Leigh Block Gallery, the Newberry Library, the Art Institute, and the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College.

The exhibition was curated by Angela Rosenthal, Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professor of Art History, Northwestern University and a team of eight co-curators from the graduate division of the Department of Art History. The exhibition will remain at the Block Gallery on view through June 22, 1997, and the virtual exhibition will become a permanent fixture of the server at the Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections, Northwestern University.
