Tending a Difficult Hope is an ongoing art installation project by artist Leah Gauthier at the SoFA Gallery, at the University of Indiana in Bloomington. Six designs from around the country were selected to be letterpress printed in editions of 500 by Kyle Durrie of Power and Light Press, in Portland, Ore., which will be available for purchase.
Each artist will be paid one third of the sales price for each print sold (estimated sales price $30 to $50 per print depending on number of colors). One third will go towards costs (printing, marketing, shipping, handling), and the final third will be donated to Tending a Difficult Hope DIY public programming workshops. One print will be released for sale to the public every two months in 2011.
