Exhibit in Special Collections

Reception and Student Awards,
Thursday, April 1st, 11:45-12:45

Special Collections, 4th floor, Walker Library

Artists’ Books from the Classroom:
Student work from the 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 is the second annual juried show hosted by Special Collections which features the work of MTSU’s Book Arts students.

Each work displayed is a unique item and reflects the learning goals of the classroom. However, these books also convey the individual creative spirit of their makers as they reflect on family, relate personal or humorous stories, and explore the expressive power of their materials. Handmade books, like mass-produced ones, are made for reading so select books from this exhibit will be periodically available in the reading room where they may be experienced more fully as their makers intended.

The show opens January 19th and runs through April 1st. Special Collections is located on the 4th floor of Walker Library and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4:30.
