Drexel’s Museum Leadership Program and the Brandywine Workshop and Archives are pleased to present celebrated Philadelphia artist, John Dowell Jr.  Launched in the Spring of 2016 and continuing this Fall, each lecture in the series will feature one of six artists working to create a collaborative printmaking project as part of the Brandywine Workshop’s iCreate initiative.

Dowell is Professor Emeritus, Temple University, Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA.  A highly accomplished printmaker, painter, water-colorist, ceramicist, photographer and musician, his art is featured in over 500 museum collections in the US and abroad.


Brandywine’s iCreate project features artists who are working with architect Ted Agoos a to create a collaborative printmaking project that involves traditional printmaking (relief process) but also  employs new, durable materials for large scale plates, which, after printing, can be installed outdoors in a public space.




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.
