'The Last Glacier,' from UW alums Anderson, Crownover, on display at the Met

November 30, 2017
UW-Madison alumni Todd Anderson and Bruce Crownover have a collection of prints in a book titled "The Last Glacier" that is on display at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gallery 690 at The Met Fifth Avenue.
 

Anderson, an art professor at Clemson University, received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Education’s Art Department in 1997. Crownover received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Art Department in 1989 and today is a master printer with UW-Madison’s Tandem Press.

In "The Last Glacier," Anderson and Crownover, along with Ian van Coller, worked on capturing the glaciers in Glacier National Park through prints and photography. Anderson and Crownover are both printmakers; and van Coller is a photographer. 

The resulting project is a collection of 15 specially bound artist's books composed of the woodblock and photographic prints, aiming to raise awareness about the world's changing landscape due to climate change and shows what is at stake through the beauty of the glaciers.
