The Sharkive represents the preservation and deep recognition of  an essential part of the history of art in Boulder.

The Sharkive  is an internationally important collection of 700 prints created in the studio of Bud and Barbara Shark and  representing a significant chapter in post-war American printmaking, featuring works by an impressive roster of contemporary artists.

Through a partnership with the Sharks and with the Bebe and Crosby Kemper Foundation, the CU Art Museum has the opportunity to acquire The Sharkive and ensure its long-term preservation.
