Anchor Graphics was a not-for-profit fine art press that brought together, under professional guidance, a diverse community of youth, emerging and established artists, and the public to advance the fine art of printmaking by integrating education with the creation of prints. The press was founded by David Jones and Marilyn Propp, and later became a program of the Art and Art Design department within Columbia College Chicago’s School of Fine and Performing Arts in 2006 and continued its mission within the college until 2015.
