The Library is delighted to host The Society of American Graphic Artists’ 85th Members Print Exhibition. SAGA was founded in 1915 as the Brooklyn Society of Etchers. It was started by printmakers with the goal of educating the public about printmaking as an art form. Some of the founding members were John Taylor Arms, Childe Hassam, and John Marin.

Ninety-one prints will be on display which will demonstrate a variety of traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques.
