2021 Imprint Competition

2021 Imprint Competition

deadline: Monday, February 15, 2021

Imprint, the annual high school student printmaking exhibition of Wharton Esherick Museum, has been a cornerstone program of the Museum for a decade. Nearly a century ago, Wharton Esherick found his true calling through printmaking; Imprint encourages young people to explore this art form and make artistic statements through it for generations to come. They are currently inviting art classes from the Chester, Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery, Berks, Lehigh, and Philadelphia Counties to enter each year. The aim for this program is to inspire new generations of young artists through Esherick’s prints and legacy.

THE COMPETITION

The jury will select pieces for an online exhibition at the Wharton Esherick Museum, opening on Sunday, March 14, 2021.

ELIGIBILITY

The competition is open to high schools in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Berks, Lehigh, and Philadelphia Counties. Public, private, charter, and home schools may enter. All submissions must be printed or include printed components. They may be one of the techniques that Esherick used (woodblock, linoleum, soft or E-Z cut), but don’t have to be! We are eager to see you get creative with your printmaking!
