Graphicstudio Research Partners Program

Contributions to the Graphicstudio Research Partners Program provide critical funding for the support of artist residencies for collaborative research and the production of innovative artworks. Graphicstudio, founded in 1968 as a non-profit, university-based, art making facility, remains committed to aesthetic and technical research in the visual arts. Leading artists are invited to work in Graphicstudio’s state-of-the-art studios in collaboration with expert artisans to create works on paper including lithographs, etchings, photogravures, digital prints, and books and sculpture multiples in a variety of materials.

In recognition of its excellence, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., has acquired and maintains an archive of Graphicstudio editions. Graphicstudio’s productions are also collected across the world by leading museums and collectors such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Israel Museum and Mamco, Geneva, among others.

In recognition of their participation with a contribution of $7,000 (annually), Research Partners receive six offerings of artworks that may be purchased for an ‘at cost’ fee (the cost of production) of $500 each (plus tax if applicable). The initial contribution of ($7,000) plus the cost of all six projects ($3,000) brings the total to $10,000 plus Florida sales tax (if applicable).

This program is an opportunity to create a collection or add depth to an existing one while supporting Graphicstudio’s continuing research mission.

Graphicstudio Research Partners Benefits
In addition to the six offerings of artworks, Partners also receive:

  • Up to 30% discount on select Graphicstudio productions.
  • At cost archival packaging for long-term storage of artworks upon request.
  • VIP Invitations to lectures by curators, scholars and Graphicstudio artists.
  • Exclusive previews and events at Graphicstudio and the USF Contemporary Art Museum.


Research Partners Availability
The number of Partners is limited to 30. Renewals are offered to current supporters on a first right of refusal. If a current member chooses not to renew their participation, a letter of invitation is sent to the next individual on the waiting list.
