Ben Nathan, Graduate Student, University of Wyoming Department of Visual and Literary Arts
Project Title: Views of the West: Then and Now

A print-art project that draws upon imagery evoked by personal journals housed at the AHC. Ben created prints inspired by Gerhard Luke Luhn’s account of an elk hunt he and fellow soldiers enjoyed while stationed at Fort Laramie in the late 1860s. He also created prints based on Edith K.O. Clark’s diary entries recounting a three-day automobile journey from Cheyenne to Denver in 1916. Lastly, he created additional intaglio prints based on his own Wyoming experiences on a chilly February day. Each of the series is housed in a specially created binder to display and protect the prints, all packaged in a leather cover based on Luhn’s leather-bound journal.
