We’re moving! (Again)

This will be brief for now. I’ll come back tomorrow and put together a more involved, detail rich post. Here’s the deal, gang…

I found out at about 7:30 yesterday morning that I will be the new Visiting Assistant Professor of printmaking at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. After 5 ego-numbing years on the job market, I finally feel validated! I’ll be teaching two sections of beginning print, a kind of survey course, and one section of lithography.

The catch: Classes begin January 7th! So, I’ll likely move up the first of the year and Hannah will follow around the end of January. We’re super excited! More details to follow!

    Congratulations, this is exciting for you guys! I’m a bit excited for me too though: Bowling Green is only a 1.5 hour drive from me. Time to think about a visit. . .
