KBAC Gallery, Sept. 6–27, 2013
Opening reception Sept. 6 during Art Hop, 6 to 9 p.m.
During the summer of 2013 eleven students from WMU’s Frostic School of Art and Lee Honors College through the Haenicke Institute for Global Education, accompanied our director Jeff Abshear on a study abroad trip, Book Arts in Venice. They traveled to Italy to work at the Scuola Internazionale di Graﬁca in Venice, Firenze Arti Visive in Florence, and Tipoteca Italiana Fondazione, a letterpress museum and studio in Cornuda, to produce intaglio prints, letterpress posters, and a limited-edition handmade book. This exhibit features the student’s sketchbooks, photos, a video, intaglio prints, letterpress posters, copies of the completed letterpress book, and ephemera documenting their experiences in Italy.
