Through the 200+ artists’ books produced since it began publishing in 1979, Women’s Studio Workshop (WSW) has been steadily chipping away at assumptions built into mainstream publishing and the mainstream art world.

Through an overview of Women’s Studio Workshop’s Hudson Valley facilities, history and its catalog of uniquely innovative book projects by women-identified artists, Artistic Director Erin Zona and Executive Director Lauren V. Walling reveal the depth of Women’s Studio Workshop’s mission to be slightly more than the sum of its parts. Learn more about the lecture content and Women’s Studio Workshop here.

This lecture is the 49th in a series named for Susan Garretson Swartzburg. Working closely with Wells faculty and staff, Swartzburg helped to organize the press, bindery and other components that became Wells’ Book Arts Center. She served on the Book Arts Board and established a biannual book arts lecture series in memory of her father, developing contacts, raising funds, organizing events and finding speakers.
