Contemporary Cultures includes prints created by Antioch High School students who participated in an after-school printmaking program organized by the Frist Art Museum and held in fall 2006. Led by two local printmakers, the Frist Art Museum program offered lessons in printmaking techniques and addressed concepts presented in the exhibition Mexico and Modern Printmaking: A Revolution in the Graphic Arts, 1920–1950 (on view at the Frist Art Museum from February 2-April 15, 2007). After creating a series of prints that reflect their ideas about contemporary culture and society, the participants selected their best works for this exhibition.
Student artists: Aubrey Cox, Nidia Gonzales, Kathryn Herbert, Ronald Hereford, Manychanh Kittirath, Bethany Lawson, Alex Mitchell, Reginald Myriek, Rosalba Ortiz, Magen Parmer, Claudia Perez, Elisabeth Rodriguez, Crystal Soverall, Brooke Stigerwaldt, and Denae Woodward.
Teaching artists: Martin Cadieux and Julie Sola
