Tamarind Institute

Tamarind Institute is a dynamic center for fine-art lithography that, since its founding in 1960, has made significant contributions to the art of the print in the United States and abroad

Tamarind offers highly focused educational and research programs, as well as opportunities for artists to create lithographs in collaboration with master printers.

The public is invited to visit Tamarind’s beautiful gallery space, located on the second floor at 2500 Central Avenue SE, admission is free, and parking is available in the lot on the south side of our building. The gallery hosts a range of exhibitions, most of which are focused on the fine art of lithography.

In addition to the gallery space, Tamarind lithographs are hanging throughout the second floor, and visitors are encouraged to wander through the hallways. Hundreds of lithographs by artists such as Jime Dine, Fritz Scholder, James Siena, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, and many more, are available for purchase.
