The exhibition will feature prints by faculty, students and recent alumni of KSU as well as e LSU printmaking faculty and students.

Representing the traditional printmaking processes of intaglio, lithography, and relief, as well as digital innovations and handmade paper (washi), Global Vision will highlight the technical diversity and current and engaging discourse occurring within the contemporary printmaking community of Japan. Some very special events will be held in conjunction with this art exhibition and opening reception:
