Some may say that books are obsolete and old-fashioned in this new digital age, but not the group of artists coming to campus this week. They will prove that books are far from boring.
The new exhibit in Ingram Hall titled “The Story Depends on the Teller: Book Arts in the Pacific Northwest” invites artists that use books as their medium to display and discuss their current work. These artists specialize in the centuries-old craft of using book covers to convey a message.
The exhibit proposes that these artists will change the way traditional books are viewed by book lovers and art lovers alike.
Over 20 artists will be showcasing exciting creations that combine new technology with the old. The varying types and sizes of these works will attempt to show the creativity book art can bring.
This exhibit will be displayed in the University Gallery through April 9th. The University Gallery is in Ingram Hall and is open to PLU students Monday-Friday from 8 am to 4 p.m..
