The free tickets will be available starting with the production of Naomi Wallace’s “Slaughter City” and will continue the rest of the year.

Library’s Blackburn Exhibition Open

A new exhibition featuring more than 60 pieces of artwork from the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop Archives and Collection is now being shown at the Library of Congress in the North Gallery of the Great Hall.

Blackburn founded the Printmaking Workshop in New York City in 1948. He was known for his groundbreaking graphic work and for his training of thousands of artists to experiment in graphic color.

The exhibit, “Creative Space: Fifty Years of Robert Blackburn’s Printmaking Workshop,” will run until June 28. Hours for the exhibit are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
