Michael Krueger visit…SUCCESS!

As part of the BIG XII Fellowship guidelines, I hosted University of Kansas Associate Professor of Art Michael Krueger. Michael was in Morgantown from Nov. 13 to Nov. 15. We had a jam packed visit for him planned: meals, critiques, lecture, demonstrations, printing, and of course bowling. The visit was a ton of fun, Michael was incredibly nice, and the student turn out was really great to see. Thank you to Michael, thank you to all my students who helped out, and a big thank you to the BIG XII Fellowship for funding the visit.

Once the critiques were over, it was time to head to the Black Bear for dinner. Michael was pretty enamored with the PRT, so they all rode it over to the Black Bear…

Alex and Sam hoping for the best. Michael asked some students to go out and get some old 45 records to ink up Intaglio style and run through the press…

Lots of prints piling up…

We had to move out into the hallway because we ran out of room to dry the prints…Cassandra was our official clean hands person, this was the point where her fingers were becoming numb from pining so many prints…
