You are invited to a party celebrating the release of new prints for the Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) Fine Print Program by artists Barbara Diener, Harness Hamese, Rachel Sussman, and Adam Schreiber. Please join the MoCP Museum Council, staff, and past and present Fine Print Program artists for a public unveiling of these exciting new prints; past prints in the program will be available for sale as well. All tickets will be held at the door and come with many exciting benefits including three complimentary drink tickets, hors d'oeuvres, and a raffle ticket for a chance to win a studio visit with Museum Council artist Matt Siber and a collection of MoCP publications. The dress code is inspired by Harness Hamese's fine print; his work is featured in the current Dandy Lion exhibition.
