Map(ing), Multiple Artists Printing, is a biennial project that uses the uniqueness of collaborative printmaking for the visual communication of ideas, sharing of culture, expression of language, and identity. Map(ing) 2013 is the third biennial to be hosted by the printmaking program in the School of Art at Arizona State University.
This seven-day event, January 3-10, 2013, coordinated by Professor Mary Hood, will focus on the collaboration of Native and Indigenous artists working with the graduate and select undergraduate students from our printmaking program, currently ranked 5th nationally by USA News and World Report.
Collaborative Teams will create a limited edition of original prints while working together to visually and conceptually explore cultural diversity, mentoring, acknowledgement of people and place, as well as cultivating an environment of communication. It is not necessary that artists have prior printmaking experience, only artistic vision and a willingness to work as a collaborator in an educational setting.
Map(ing) 2013 will feature a moderated public forum with the artists and collaborators to discuss contemporary themes and ideas in Native creative practices, and will culminate with an exhibition and reception at the Night Gallery in Tempe Marketplace in Tempe, Arizona.
Your support of the Map(ing) project will fund the artist honorarium and travel expenses for invited artists, all materials necessary to complete the project, exhibition costs as well as a modest stipend for the graduate students.

Risks and challenges
This is a very ambitious project, to be completed in a short amount of time. However, with the dedication of my graduate students, artists, and assistants, we have successfully completed the project twice, each time with great rewards and great effort. Fund raising is always challenging, though I have great hopes for our Kickstarter campaign!
~ on behalf of our entire Map(ing) team, Thank You for your pledge!
