More > Prints: New Media of the Renaissance” class during the fall semester of 2016 in the School of Art, Art History, & Design at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Still others reference the printed page as a “body.” Whether fish, fowl, or human, the body as seen in these prints continues to intrigue us across the centuries and show that even though times change, people and their concerns do not. With contributions from John-David Richardson, Grant Potter, Grace Short, Taylor Wismer, Stephanie Wright, Claire Kilgore, Nikita Lenzo, Bryon Hartley, Ian Karss, Danley Walkington, and Taylor Stobbe.< Less
