Ben Blount, letterpress artist from Evanston, IL; Emmy Lingscheit, Assoc. Professor in Printmaking; and Guen Montgomery, Clinical Professor in Art & Design will co-create a broadside that will be printed in a live demo by the Noble Print Club. Attendees will then travel to Fresh Press Agri-Fiber Paper Lab where Eric Benson, Professor in Graphic Design will give a tour.
