Carnegie Mellon University tour…

On Friday, Sept. 26, WVU Printmaking students and I got the chance to tour the Carnegie Mellon University Printshop.

Former WVU Graduate Student Matt Forrest, who now works for CMU, was gracious enough to give us the tour. Thanks to Matt and to Jen Rockage for setting the tour up.
