Graphicstudio is a university-based workshop engaged in a unique experiment in art and education, committed to research and the application of traditional and new techniques for the production of limited edition prints and sculpture multiples. Graphicstudio with the Contemporary Art Museum and the Public Art Program form the Institute for Research in Art in the College of The Arts at the University of South Florida. Graphicstudio, the experimental print workshop founded by Donald J. Saff on the University of South Florida Tampa campus, produced its earliest works in 1969. With the support of then president Cecil Mackey, Saff modelled Graphicstudio after the Pratt Graphics Center, Tamarind Press, and Gemini G.E.L. The first artist to participate at Graphicstudio was Philip Pearlstein. Alumni now include Richard Anuszkiewicz, Adja Yunkers, James Rosenquist, Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Dine, Edward Ruscha, Chuck Close, Robert Mapplethorpe, Miriam Schapiro, Roy Lichtenstein, Nancy Graves, Allan McCollum, and Vik Muniz.
