MAPC2014: Open Portfolio


After two years of built up excitement and suspense, Print City Detroit – the 2014 Mid America Print Council conference – has come to a close. Scheduled amid four days of great panels, demos, and exhibitions was the always exciting Open Portfolio event. An ever-evolving model, MAPC and Wayne State University set up four open portfolio sessions over three days: Two back to back on Thursday afternoon, one on Friday, and the final round on Saturday.

Open Portfolio was well attended and energetic, with an impressive range of print-based work on display. The following photographs capture a mere sampling of participating artists over the four sessions.

As always, keeping track of everyone’s information is quite a task. Please do identify yourself, your work, and your website in the comments section below.
