The international traveling exhibit, “Dialogos y Interpretaciones,” is located on the first floor of the I.D. Weeks library building in the University Libraries Gallery. Co-curators, Jules Floss of the United States and Jorge Osorio of Columbia, have brought together more than 70 artists from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Honduras and the United States for an artistic and cultural exchange. Artists were given great latitude in their interpretation of the portfolio’s theme and every fine art print in the exchange features traditional printmaking techniques such as relief, lithography, intaglio, serigraphy and letterpress.
