State of the State is an exhibition that features the work of current Second State Press (SSP) Fob Holders. It represents a snapshot of the Philadelphia printmaking community and the work that it produces. Located in the basement of the Crane Arts Building, Second State Press is a communal printmaking studio that provides artists with an affordable, supportive, and professional workspace. The Fob Holder Program accepts members that are willing to help manage our shop in exchange for unlimited access to the printmaking facilities. Participants in the program, “Fob Holders”, are skilled printmakers from all over the country at various stages in their careers who have decided to make Philadelphia their home. Their creative energy in our shop is palpable and is the lifeblood of Second State Press.
