The Serie Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the fine art of serigraphy – a technique that produces original, hand-pulled prints. Over the course of the last 20 years, the organization has hosted an Artist in Residence program that allowed for participants to learn the technique of serigraphy and create a limited edition print under the guidance of a Master Printer. The Serie Project has encouraged multi-racial participation with the hope of increasing the presence of minorities in the art world.
It is in our mission to produce, promote, and exhibit the work of artists while allowing for the production and sale of prints to be affordable for both artist and patron. In keeping with our mission, we work to market the prints created by our resident artists. These print sales promote the careers of the individual artists and help to support operational costs to sustain our project. Each edition of prints is priced at a minimum so that we may offer an original work of art to the public at an affordable price.
The Serie Project was founded in 1993. We have hosted more than 250 residents and printed over 300 works to date. Sam Coronado, a Chicano artist and activist from Austin, founded the program in hopes of providing a place for Latino artists to make art and have a voice. He served as our Executive Director for the last 20 years until his passing in November of 2013. His wife, Jill Ramirez, has chosen to step up as Executive Director and continue Sam’s legacy.
