Collecting Ink, an exhibition guest-curated by printmaker and artist Craig Subler, presents work in printmaking from public and private collections in Kansas City. The exhibition exemplifies the significant and rich presence of printmaking and print collecting in Kansas City.

This citywide project welcomed thousands of visitors to Kansas City and included the participation and support of local and regional institutions through a variety of exhibitions and public programs.
