International Print Center New York is a non-profit institution founded to promote the greater appreciation and understanding of the fine art print worldwide. Through innovative programming, it fosters a climate for the enjoyment, examination and serious study of artists' prints – from the old master to the contemporary. IPCNY offers its members a program of workshop and gallery visits, and has established an informational website and Information Desk available to the public at the gallery. IPCNY depends upon public and private donations to support its programs.
The New Prints Program is funded in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts. Generous funding is provided by The Greenwall Foundation. A grant from the Robert Lehman Foundation supports IPCNY’s exhibitions programs.
