LAG Visits UW Visual Arts Center

Mark Ritchie shows members of the LAG the print-making area of the VAC. Area features ventilation above the presses (see objects hanging from ceiling) which can be directed specifically to individual work areas as well as central vents which keep fumes from acid baths & other chemicals from collecting in the room.

Both old beds and lithostones have been saved and are in use as well as contemporary equipment. I was very impressed that the UW Art Department had the foresight to not discard extremely usable pieces of equipment just because of their age.
