Freedom of the Presses is a collaborative exhibition co-curated by Marshall Weber of Booklyn, Inc. and members of the Ringling College of Art and Design community. It focuses on the creative and democratic processes of 21st Century independent artist’s publishing and offers models of empowering and educational art publishing practices.
