Printshop Tour: University of Wyoming
One week ago today I was standing in the new University of Wyoming Art Building in Laramie, Wyoming. It felt bitter cold outside to this Austin-transplant (though I have to admit I saw at least one student walking around in shorts) but it was toasty inside with warm light coming in through the windows and skylights. I walked through the printshop early Friday morning and three students were in the printshop hard at work. Their excitement about the new building was palpable. The beautiful space opened only a month or so ago with the start of the Spring semester. I used my recent visit as a chance to provide Printeresting readers some photos of a shop taking shape.
As Prof. Mark Ritchie points out, “it’s a work in progress.” The shop is still waiting for an oversized press, rolling tables, a ferric chloride cabinet, an aquatint box, and paper drying racks. Even without all the frills, enjoy some pictures of a great space (and try not to be too jealous). Big thanks to Shelby, Diana, Mark, and the whole UW Art Department for their hospitality.
