Student Exhibit in Special Collections

Artists’ Books from the Classroom: Student work from Book Arts classes

Walker Library is pleased to announce a new exhibit featuring the work of students from MTSU’s Department of Art. This exhibition of works inaugurates an annual juried show hosted by Special Collections which will provide a public forum for Book Arts students to display their work.

Thematic variety and the use of diverse materials characterize these artists’ books, demonstrating how individual the creative process is even among a group of students working within parameters set out for the classroom setting. The goal of this show is to help those who view the exhibit appreciate what students have gained from the course as well as broaden their own concept of what a book is and can be.

The show opens November 19th and runs through January 30th. Special Collections is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4:30.
