Salt City Dozen
The Salt City Dozen is an international juried print portfolio organized by the Syracuse University Print Media & Graphic Arts Program. The title of the portfolio refers to Syracuse’s early history of salt mining. The Salt City Dozen folio seeks to document the wide range of innovative techniques and unique approaches used by students across the U.S. and Abroad. From the traditional to the experimental, The Salt City Dozen is dedicated to celebrating print as a dynamic medium for visual expression.
Twelve artist will be selected for this portfolio based on JPEGS of their current body of work. Each artist is then responsible for producing an image in an edition of fourteen (14) that best reflects their juried submissions. The paper size for the edition is 15x20” and the prints may investigate any subject or theme. One folio is preserved by the Lake Effect Editions archive and the other is donated and archived by Syracuse University Art Galleries.
The portfolio cases are designed, hand-constructed, and collated in the Syracuse University Print Media and Graphic Arts studios by graduate printmaking students. Syracuse University Print Media and Graphic Art will exhibit the Salt City Dozen folio in the Sarah A. Coyne Gallery on the SU campus. Other venues are actively sought, including the locations of the selected artists.
