Artist info

Sid Chafetz was passionately interested in politics, justice, education, and literature and almost equally fond of puns, jokes, and bawdy humor. To him, being an artist meant “using satire to stab at pomposity, whether in my own field of academe or in our political world” and “honoring the great poets and writers who speak to the human condition.” These beliefs permeated his art.

Chafetz was born on March 27, 1922, in Providence, Rhode Island. He enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1940 and was drafted into the U.S. Army two years later. After serving in the war, Chafetz returned to the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating in 1947. He then went back to Europe and continued his professional training at L’Ecole Americaine des Beaux-Arts in Fontainebleau, France; the Acadãmie Julian in Paris; and with artists Fernand Lãger and Stanley W. Hayter.

 Chafetz came to teach at The Ohio State University in 1948 and was instrumental in establishing and nurturing the printmaking program in the Department of Art. He retired from the university as professor emeritus in 1982 so he could concentrate on his own work. Chafetz remained active as a working and exhibiting artist throughout his life.

 His honors and awards included two Fulbright Fellowships, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, a MacDowell Fellowship, and a Ford Foundation grant. Private and corporate collections worldwide, and in such museums as the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, the Morgan Library, the New York Public Library, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Columbus Museum of Art, a major repository of his work.
