Oil and Water: Concerning the use or mis-use of our natural resources. Whether dealing with issues of flooding and diversion in the Red River Valley or oil development and fracking on the Bakken Oil Formation, printmaking students and faculty from Concordia College, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Minot State University, North Dakota State University, University of Manitoba, University of North Dakota and Valley City State University tackle challenging issues through the fascinating medium of printmaking. The portfolio was first exhibited at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, ND from April 6th through May 12th.  A print exchange took place on April 6th where students exchanged portfolio prints and presented their work to the public. The project was coordinated by Heidi Goldberg, Kent Kapplinger, and John Volk, with 37 participants.
