Ashland University Art Department Alumni Charlie Wagers will present a seminar on screen printing at the Akron Art Museum on January 16, 2014. The presentation is part of the museum’s current  exhibition, “Multiplicity: Contemporary Prints from the Smithsonian American Art Museum.”  Wagers will discuss his favorite prints in the exhibition and introduce museum goers to the print-making processes.
