Produced by the Service Bureau at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, The FOLD is an editioned print series drawing from the wealth of Students, Faculty, Staff and Alumni within the SAIC community. The FOLD is an opportunity for these artists to experiment with print technology as well as showcase the digital output options SAIC’s Service Bureau has to offer.


Our inaugural artist of 2016 was Andrew Holmquist. Andrew received both his BFA and MFA in Painting and Drawing from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2008 and 2015 respectively. He is represented by Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago.

The 5″x 5″ folded Risograph piece was printed on French Paper Company’s Construction Pure White.
