The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA). Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at the University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture; give critiques to the students they work with; and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty, and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in VPA’s School of Art.

Christine Hill is the proprietor of Volksboutique, a forum for discussing industry and labor, transactional exchange, and value systems.
Founded in 1996 in Berlin in the guise of a second hand store, its inclusion in documenta X in 1997 introduced the project to a broader audience.
Volksboutique has authored numerous performative installations serving as alternative business models/proposals commissioned by museums, biennials, and galleries since its inception.
Volksboutique examines concepts of cultural “value” and points viewers’ attention to specific objects and events that risk being overlooked as too quotidian or too common.
As a self-declared hobby archivist and librarian, Hill’s governing interest is in defining select arenas where art should be lived.
Christine Hill is Professor and Chair of Art & Social Terrain at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
