Historical Context:
Erica Lang is the Founder and Artist behind Woosah Outfitters and Printshop in downtown Grand Rapids. "Woosah is a slang word that brings a sense of inner peace, calmness and stillness when said out loud. Take a deep breath in, and exhale; that's Woosah". For Lang there are two things that bring her Woosah: spending days in the studio carving and printing woodblocks, and being emerged in the stillness and beauty of nature.
