Silk Screenings  Prospect Human Services

Silk Screenings is a collection of prints from our eponymous silk screening program, wherein the theme of “inspiration” took on many colorful and creative forms. The artists—some of whom were first time practitioners of this form of printmaking—were challenged to brainstorm and gather inspiration from all aspects of their lives including, but not limited to, dreams, nature, emotions, memory, and imagination. Each print was carefully made with layers of tracing paper, stencils, and many weeks of work developing compositions. Through the thoughtful and meticulous practice of silk screening, the artists made material their greatest inspirations.

Prospect Human Services is a not-for-profit that helps people who face barriers to employment, including adults with developmental disabilities. Prospect uses art as a creative teaching tool to further develop individuals’ employment skills and readiness. This includes designing and teaching community based art programs, collaborating with community partners and developing connections in the arts community to support exhibiting these artists’ works.
