The 2012 Print
Each year, the FIA Print Society commissions an artist to produce a print to augment both the FIA's collection and the pursuit of personal collecting. The Society is limited to 100 members in good standing at the Family level or above. FIA Print Society dues are $250.00 annually, which provides each participating member with a selected print and related programs.
The Flint Institute of Arts worked with Sidney Hurwitz to produce the image for 2012. For years, Hurwitz has focused his printmaking on images from the steel industry and related industrial and urban subjects. Working primarily with aquatint, Hurwitz finds American industry to be a great source of visual material. By focusing on the geometric forms of bridges, factories and train stations, the compositions take on abstract qualities.
