Robert Blackburn was an artist, commercial printer, and teacher who grew up in Harlem in the 1930s. Throughout his prolific career, Blackburn pioneered new print techniques, collaborated with dozens of artists and print studios, and established his own printing workshop in 1948.
This homage to Blackburn by regional artist Ron Adams—made at the Lawrence Lithography Workshop—is evidence of the lasting impact of Blackburn as an artist and educator. #BlackHistoryMonth
