The portfolio presents exclusive prints of works by 12 artists; each of the artists included are part of Rush’s exhibition history from 1995-2020. Each piece is signed and numbered by the artist and is available in an edition of only 30, and 15 artist proofs.
The artists in the Rush 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio include:

Dr. Fahamu Pecou
Rush Arts rich exhibition history of nearly 2,000 exhibited artists include important early, pivotal exhibitions by, as just a few examples, Kehinde Wiley, Wangechi Mutu, Simone Leigh, Hank Willis Thomas, Dread Scott, Sanford Biggers, Renee Cox and more. The 25th Anniversary Print Portfolio both commemorates this vital artistic history, and captures Rush Arts ongoing, energetic support of bold new artwork for new audiences.
