In 1955, Alice Nichols, director of the Ball State Art Gallery, began a project that ran for more than three decades and brought a wealth of contemporary art to the community. Works of art acquired during the long run of this annual juried show are on display at the museum in Great Things from Small Packages: The Drawing and Small Sculpture Shows.

Because of their fragility and sensitivity to light, many of the Museum’s more than 4,000 works on paper are seldom displayed in its galleries. The latest exhibition in the Brown Study Room provides an overview of the printmaker’s art and an opportunity to view carefully selected
prints from the collection.
The works on display present a survey of the history of printmaking from the fifteenth century to the present, and have been carefully selected to represent the three fundamental families of prints: relief, intaglio, and planographic or surface printing. The exhibition explores the principles, techniques, and processes of printmaking, and illustrates a variety of techniques, including woodcut, engraving, etching, aquatint, drypoint, and lithography.
