The International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) is pleased to announce the return of Print Month 2021, running October 4 - October 29, 2021. This month-long celebration of printmaking brings together brilliant artists, art lovers, critics, and historical experts for online programs at 12:00 p.m. EDT daily. "It is a pleasure to share the IFPDA platform with our members and cultural partners," said Jenny Gibbs, Executive Director of the IFPDA. "Print Month is really a labor of love --- it's the highlight of our year, bringing our communities together to share ideas and insights into so many aspects of the creation, collection, and our understanding of prints and their makers". This year Print Month features programs and symposia organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the International Print Center of New York, the Print Council of America, the Association of Print Scholars, and the galleries and publishers of the IFPDA.

Particularly exciting programming includes a discussion, convened and chaired by IFPDA President David Tunick, about the impact of prints on museum collections with Glenn Lowry, David Rockefeller Director at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and others on October 5. The Metropolitan Museum of Art will present Prints in Relief; Print Study Day on October 6, and a three-part symposium on artists of the Grosvenor School, taking place October 11, 18, and 25. Additionally, Print Month will feature a live studio visit with Kiki Smith and Harlan & Weaver on October 15, and a talk with Susan Tallman exploring the role of prints in the art world on October 26. 

IFPDA will also present its annual Fine Art Print Fair, Fall 2021 Online Edition from October 15-31, 2021 with more than 100 exhibitors, all vetted members of the IFPDA with curated bespoke booths on the IFPDA's exclusive online platform
