The Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop is a community printshop dedicated to continuing the legacy of its founder and master printer Robert Blackburn, a jazz aficionado who held similar ideologies to the local Jazz communities of the late 1960s. This indie spirit glistens though the jazz-inspired works that will be on view in NOTES AND TONES. The exhibit will also include a closer look at community partner WBGO, a celebrated national radio station based in Newark.
