Walt Whitman, From Photographs to Prints: A Series of Three Workshops is a hands-on exploration of the creation, translation, and printing of images — a major part of the nineteenth century print trade in which Whitman played an important role. Draw from Vintage Photographs with artist R.A. Friedman on January 26, Cut a Linoleum Block (perhaps from your drawing) with artist Barbara Henry on February 9, and Print from Linoleum Blocks on the Letterpress at Common Press. The complete workshop series is $90.00 for three 6-hour workshops. Open to community members. Registration details can be found at If space permits, you may register for a single workshop only after January 21.

This event is part of Whitman at 200: Art and Democracy, a year-long series of cultural events and artistic commissions generated by University of Pennsylvania Libraries and partner organizations to mark the bicentennial of Walt Whitman, America’s “poet of democracy,” who was born on May 31, 1819. Whitman lived the last two decades of his life in Camden, across the Delaware River from Philadelphia. In 2019 we recognize his connection to the region and his far-reaching relevance today. Major support for Whitman at 200: Art and Democracy has been provided to the University of Pennsylvania Libraries by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
