After spending an inordinate amount of time at the inaugural Philagrafika print festival in museum galleries replete with wall labels and overly alert museum guards, it was a relief to encounter the raucous and excited crowd packed into the Print Center in Philadelphia, a nonprofit gallery founded in 1915 as the "Print Club." Visitors were making origami or playing a giant board game based on geopolitics designed by Mexican artist Erick Beltrán or lounging in a giant multi-colored yurt erected especially for the fest by a local Philadelphia artists’ collective called Space 1026.
