Hey, arts writers. Impending deadline. If we did it, so can you!
(Yes, that is a conscious embrace of terrible kerning.) In addition to All These Theses, we’re trying to start a new ongoing feature called New Voices to share the work of under-exposed and emerging artists. Please spread the word. Visit the post for more details.
We’re nearing the end of spring semester for a lot of us and we’re bringing back All These Theses, posts featuring the work from the class of 2014. Are you graduating or know someone who is? Send us some pics of your thesis shows/prints at email@example.com and maybe we’ll include them in a thesis post. Please spread the word.

providencepubliclibrary:Several shots of an incredible book in our Nickerson Art & Architecture Collection. This elephant folio was etched and produced by Giovanni Battista Piranesi in 1775 and features this amazing 9 foot fold out of Trajan’s Column. The close ups don’t even do the level of detail justice. #libraries #rarebooks #providence #rhodeisland #etchings #illustrations #folios #18thcentury #printing #printinghistory (at Providence Public Library)
