Since its founding by Fine Arts and Creative Writing faculty in 2014, Counterproof Press has facilitated studio projects in which students, faculty, and visiting artists/scholars from various fields have worked together to produce limited edition art objects, artifacts, and creative publications. The Provost’s grant will enable Counterproof Press to grow into an artist’s press with a regional and national presence. Please visit our website here:
