Graphicstudio is an ongoing experiment in art and education at the University of South Florida. At Graphicstudio, leading artists from around the world are invited to work in residence to produce limited edition prints and sculpture multiples. The faculty and staff of Graphicstudio collaborate with visiting artists to realize projects that would not otherwise be possible without the assistance of Graphicstudio’s printmaking and sculpture experts.

Tours of Graphicstudio visit each aspect of the studio’s facility: the main gallery space, curating, lithography, and etching. Tours view printmaking demonstrations in either lithography or etching and each visitor receives a small sample of a print produced at Graphicstudio.
