PYRAMID ATLANTIC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit contemporary arts center
dedicated to the creation and appreciation of hand papermaking,
printmaking, digital arts, and the art of the book. For nearly 25
years, Pyramid has provided opportunities for the discovery and creation of
these fine arts through imaginative programming for people of all ages,
backgrounds, and abilities. An artist-centered community with an
international and local following, Pyramid Atlantic brings print and
paper arts to people all over the world.

Pyramid Atlantic was founded in 1981 by noted artist and teacher Helen
C. Frederick to provide a setting for artistic collaboration and dialogue.
Since then, Pyramid has played a critical role in the art world by:

    * hosting hundreds of artists in residence
    * developing outreach programs for students and the community
    * offering classes for artists of all levels
    * producing and publishing numerous print and artist book editions
    * conserving and collecting works on paper
    * curating exhibitions both locally and throughout the world
    * providing professional development programs for teachers

Pyramid Atlantic receives federal and state funds as well as generous
support from private foundations, corporations, and local businesses.
In addition to this funding, we count individual donors and members among
our most valued supporters.

At Pyramid, tradition and innovation go hand in hand. In 2003, Pyramid
relocated to the heart of the Arts & Entertainment District in downtown
Silver Spring, MD. The new facility features a paper mill, print shop,
letterpress studio, bindery, and cutting-edge digital studios.
