I make woodblock prints (Woodcuts) inspired by landscapes, creatures and human enterprises in our world, especially centered in life in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is my way of saying that these things are valuable - they truly matter! As you see them, I hope that you think so too. --Ben Bohnsack
AS A RESIDENT ARTIST I HAVE A TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE MY ART AS INSPIRED BY WHAT I EXPERIENCE THERE! I will draw what I see and talk with people, getting ready to make a series of woodcuts that depict the story of homesteading in our land. As much as possible I will work in public spaces where visitors can watch and talk about what I'm doing. What a great opportunity! I look forward to being there.
