Carleton College professor and printmaker Fred Hagstrom has been named the 2014 Book Artist Award winner for his new piece, "Passage." The annual award is presented jointly by the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and the Minnesota Book Awards, and Hagstrom joins Jana Pullman, Bridget O'Malley and Amanda Degener of Cave Paper, Regula Russelle, and others in receiving the honor.

Hagstrom teaches printmaking, drawing, art and narrative, and artist's books at Carleton, and has lectured and studied all over the world. His new piece, "Passage," juxtaposes archival photographs of slave ships, hand-drawn diagrams depicting the conditions aboard the ships, and selected text from two books on the issue of slave trade.

Hagstrom will be honored at the Minnesota Book Awards gala in the spring, and his work will be displayed at Open Book from Jan. 24-March 30, with a reception at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 24.
