Normal Editions is a non-profit print research facility within the Wonsook Kim School of Art and the Wonsook Kim College of Fine Arts at Illinois State University. Normal Editions was founded in 1976 to publish limited-edition fine art prints in a professional print research setting; create new works of art; educate; and expand appreciation of print media. Over the past forty-six years, Normal Editions has worked with over 150 artists with diverse approaches to image making, subject matter, and content to produce works in a variety of printmaking media. Normal Editions focuses on enhancing student experiences as members of a team. The result is an outstanding collaborative experience that goes far beyond the usual classroom. Artists of regional, national, and international reputation explore the expressive possibilities of printmaking media with a team of students, staff, and faculty. Normal Editions has created collaborative print projects with: Phyllis Bramson, Jane Dickson, Hector Duarte, Maritza Dávila, Julia Fish, Mark Forth, John Fraser, Judy Glantzman, Alex Grey, Arturo Herrera, John Himmelfarb, Mark Innerst, Donald Lipski, Dennis Oppenheim, Rudy Pozzatti, Richard Rezac, Kenny Scharf, Kiki Smith, Robert Stackhouse, Ian Weaver, and David Wojnarowicz, among many others. Recent visiting artists include Daniel Baird, Bethany Collins, Amy Cousins, Salvador Jiménez-Flores, Reuben Lorch-Miller, Nazafarin Lotfi, Mark E. Ritchie, Laura Splan, and Jaimie Warren.
A Juror’s Choice Award winner will collaborate with Normal Editions to produce an edition of prints, and a University Galleries’ Award winner will have a future one-person exhibition in University Galleries’ project space.
This exhibition is organized by Normal Editions Workshop. The exhibition and programming are supported in part by grants from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Harold K. Sage Fund, and the Alice and Fannie Fell Trust.
