UNO assistant professor featured in ‘The Paris Review’

Among those works in the current issue of "The Paris Review," which shows artistic interpretations of women by women, are prints made by Wanda Ewing, assistant professor in the University of Nebraska Omaha's College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media. Ewing is the first Omahan ever featured in the magazine, which began in 1953—about 200 issues ago. The artistic works of "Women by Women" range from photography to Ewing's prints on found wallpaper.
