POCATELLO – Idaho State University’s new Pinyon Jay Press will host visiting artist Kerri Cushman on March 2 and 3.
Cushman is a sculptural book artist and avid papermaker with an affinity for letterpress, and a professor at Longwood University in Virginia.
The Pinyon Jay Press is a collaborative venture between ISU’s Department of Communication, Media and Persuasion, the Department of English and Philosophy and the Department of Art. The press is housed in the VisComm Experimental Lab in the Liberal Arts Building.
