Tyler Printmaking has a robust schedule of visitings artists, scholars, curators, writers, and critics, who present public lectures, work with our students to collaboratively create projects, present their research, and engage with our students in one-on-one critiques. We also regularly venture out of our studios to visit artists studios, print studios, exhibitions, and events in Philadelphia and in nearby New York City.
Additionally, Tyler School of Art hosts a range of compelling public presentations through the Critical Dialogues series and Temple Contemporary's ongoing series of lectures and events.

2014 Guggeheim Fellow, Stephanie Syjuco, worked with in close collaboration with Tyler Printmaking students and Fox Business School students to create a model black market economy. Responding directly to research projects on Philadelphia's underground economy by Fox students, Syjuco selected objects that Printmaking students designed and printed in the Temple Contemporary gallery.
Jeffry Mitchell, artist in residence, presenting his work in lithography studio.
This fall guest artist in residence Jeffry Mitchell from Seattle worked in both the printmaking and ceramics to create new work. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Currently he shows with Ambach and Rice in Los Angeles. While at Tyler he met with students for individual critiques, class presentations and created a lithograph and numerous ceramic objects. His cross-disciplinary approach was a great example of an artist uses different media to explore ideas an approach that we encourage.

In 2013, artist Katie Grinnan was invited to complete a short-term residency at Tyler School of Art. During her stay she worked directly with students from Printmaking to complete a series of prints on cement which were incorporated into her exhibition, For Your Information at The Print Center. Grinnan's visit is a great example of the type of close interaction we like to bring to our students.
