It is part of an ongoing partnership between the art department at Eastern Oregon University and ACE – two organizations dedicated to building community through education in the arts.
The print is one in an edition of eighty and was printed on Arches 88 Silk Screen paper using Speedball inks. It was created in the printmaking studio on campus by Haley with assistance from Susan Murrell, Associate Professor of Art.
