PAFA is excited to partner with the Brandywine Workshop and Archives to present a six part lecture series entitled iCreate. Launching in the Spring of 2016 and continuing into the Fall, each lecture in the series will feature one of six artists that are working to create a collaborative printmaking project as part of the Brandywine Workshop’s iCreate initative. The third artist to be featured is Gustavo Garcia.
GUSTAVO GARCIA was born and raised in Michoacán, Mexico. Through his work, Gustavo tells the story of places and people, searching to show the influence of politics, geography, and industry on individuals and their communities. His work is deeply influenced by his upbringing in the south west of Mexico, and his eventual relocation to the US, continuing a narrative of migration in his family.
Gustavo Garcia studied in Philadelphia and Rome earning a BFA in Printmaking from Tyler School of Art, Temple University. He oversees printing at Brandywine Workshop and Archives, and works as a freelance photographer and videographer in the Greater Philadelphia Area.

Brandywine Workshop and Archives was founded in 1972 as the Brandywine Graphic Workshop. The organization remains committed to the creation, documentation and preservation of a legacy of culturally diverse American art and insuring the participation of multi-ethnic artists and audiences in the field of fine art printmaking and related media technologies.
iCreate is a program of the Brandywine Workshop and Archives in cooperation with universities and other national partners. iCreate is the name given to all Brandywine Workshop and Archives projects that explore the integration of art and technology through the creative process. Visiting artist workshops, student workshops and digital media projects provide varied opportunities for participants to work together with experts in technology. With a focus on S.T.E.A.M. based learning and collaborative art- making, iCreate promotes the use of digital platforms for integrated learning, expression, presentation and interpretation.
