All Types will feature additional artwork by each of Hot Type’s artists and is a radical departure for many of the participating artists. Printing making has a proud tradition as a visual voice; both beauty and ugliness area used to speak in these works. Printmakers in this exhibit range in age from 27 to 91. Their experience is diverse.
BLM - The Board of Directors of the Bristol Art Museum mourn the senseless death of George Floyd and all the victims of racial injustice. The Board actively supports efforts to bridge racial disparities, to reject racism, and to work toward making Bristol a much more culturally rich and inclusive community through the arts. The Board believes art fosters learning, contemplation, and critical discourse; it recognizes positive change is achieved through active engagement with the town and residents. Change happens when communities work together to achieve common goals. Therefore, Bristol Art Museum is committed to developing exhibits and programs around equity, respect, and compassion. These are the organization's guiding principles and touchstones for moving forward.
