Richard Graves art featured on special Stay Homecoming t-shirt

Posted by Monica Hoel
Artwork was revealed at the E&H Bookstore online shopping event! (Click here to see the video! The coupon is “stayhome2020” and is good through Oct. 9, 2020.)

We couldn’t have the most unusual homecoming in E&H history without having a t-shirt to mark the occasion!

The tshirt design was revealed yesterday afternoon (Oct. 2) and shirts are already flying off the shelves! So now we’ll share what it looks like!

We are grateful to many for this fun t-shirt design, including Leah Prater for our Stay Homecoming logo – which is featured on the back of the shirt.

And we especially thank Richard Graves (E&H Class of 2008) for his original art on the front of the t-shirt. The pocket area artwork reflects a question that alumni ask all Saturday evening. “Did we win?” is the question most asked on the evening of Homecoming because so many people get distracted by seeing friends that they miss the football game entirely!

The shirts arrived yesterday morning, and are available through the bookstore website.  (If you lose the link, look under unisex and search “Homecoming.”) You won’t want to miss having a great tee, a great bit of art, and a great piece of history!

  • This tshirt is not only fun, it’s a collectors item! It features Richard Graves’ original art, and it documents the only Homecoming in history when you’ve been encouraged NOT to come to campus! And it’s super soft and comfy!
