What is a book? :: A Book Arts Exhibit
This exhibit presents visitors with an opportunity to challenge their notion of what a book's form, function, and message can be. Created by a diverse range of artists, the pieces on exhibit in "What is a book?" were curated by Associate Dean of Libraries Sha Towers (a book artist himself) whose vision and discerning eye first shaped the scope and content of the collection.
