New York Art Print Week goes beyond the centers of focused activity and exhibitors provided by the trio of art fairs. At its heart, IFPDA has compiled and provided the opportunity to explore a spectrum of printmaking that spans history, mediums, techniques and artists. The purpose can be found in the introduction to the exhaustive list of possibilities taking place this week and beyond and compiled by IFPDA to create New York Art Print Week:

"This lively schedule of lectures, exhibitions, demonstrations, gallery talks, and openings is focused on printmaking and its vitality as an artistic practice. Print Week enables collectors, artists, scholars, educators, and the public to connect with IFPDA member galleries, museums, and non-profit organizations to discover new projects, enrich their knowledge of fine prints, and expand or begin their own collections."
