To interpret the title of this this year's Drawing Project, please read about the origins of the word "cliché." The phrase, "everything has been done," typically defines cliché. Is it possible to find meaning, or open an awareness to something through the use of a stereotype? Maybe discover the beauty in a drawing of a "Seagull on a Post," or something typically referred to as cliché. This drawing exhibition seeks to debunk cliché as a form of criticism meant to diminish the value of one's work.

cliche (n.)
1825, electrotype, stereotype, from French cliché, a technical word in printer’s jargon for “stereotype block,” noun use of past participle of clicher “to click” (18c.), supposedly echoic of the sound of a mold striking metal.

Figurative extension to trite phrase, worn-out expression is first attested 1888, via the notion of the metal plate from which a print or design could be reproduced endlessly without variety, paralleling the sense evolution of stereotype. But this sense was not common in English until the 1920s, when it was identified as a French idiom.
