The Oregonian reviews Alison Saar's new exhibition Crepuscular Blue at PNCA's Center for Contemporary Art & Culture, calling Muddy Water one of three new prints for the show, "unnervingly timely." The exhibition was curated by Paul Mullowney, who has a fine art printing studio in San Francisco as part of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Exhibition and Visiting Artist Lecture Series, which, in collaboration with the Center and PNCA's MFA in Print Media, brings an artist to the school for an exhibition of works drawn from the expansive print collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.  

The O calls the exhibition a "comprehensive and incisive" look at Saar's oeuvre with 24 prints (three new) and sculptures from Saar’s gallery, L.A. Louver in Venice, California.
