The primary mission of the Brodsky Center is to enable groundbreaking artists, both established and emerging, to create new work in paper and print. Artists-in-residence are invited to engage in one-on-one collaborations with the Brodsky Center’s master printers and papermakers. These experts and innovators make it possible for artists to translate their vision into a media that may be new to them. Since the Brodsky Center was conceived, diversity has been central to its mission and has consistently supported women and artists of color. The Brodsky Center is dedicated to the promotion of editions, paper and the printed image as central to contemporary art practice.
The Brodsky Center is housed in the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, a major research institution. Innovation and education are integral to its mission. High school to post graduate students are exposed to the most current art practice and processes through classes, lectures, internships, school visits and regular exhibitions.
