      The Press at Colorado College: the Pressroom as Classroom
      Curated by Betty Bright

      August 26 to October 15, 2004
      Museum Hours: Monday to Friday, 9 to 12, 1 to 5

      Pressrooms have always been classrooms. From Gutenberg's day to our
      own, young women and men have hovered closely around rhythmically
      throbbing presses, the only place they could hope to learn the secrets
      of the so-called black art of letterpress printing. Students of the
      liberal arts, however, have not traditionally been among the adepts of
      the black art. Until modern times, indeed, a liberal education was one
      that freed its students from manual arts, not one that included them.
      Only in the twentieth century did printing education move out of the
      world of apprentice training and into courses for designers, writers,
      and artists. Even today very few liberal arts colleges offer courses or
      practical experience in printing. For the length of Jim Trissel's
      career and since, however, the outstanding exception has been the Press
      at Colorado College, one of the nation's premier fine presses and a
      classroom for a generation of CC students. This exhibit and the
      accompanying catalog celebrate that fruitful, creative space, Jim
      Trissel's classroom. Paul F. Gehl
