Eric Von Haynes

Eric Von Haynes is the founder of Flatlands Press, a co-founder of The Love Fridge Chicago, and presently serves as Board President for Chicago Printers Guild. He is an artist, publisher, designer, and curator whose work synthesizes old and new printing methods and aesthetics. While design and printmaking are his passions, he is energized by collaborations and the ideas and challenges that come from working with a community. Flatlands has created art objects and printed ephemera for artists worldwide. One of the core tenets at Flatlands Press is community building and making the invisible visible.

During his residency at CAD, Eric is eager to work on multiple programs that focus on community engagement.
