Contribute to the 2016 Capital Campaign!

The Center for Book Arts is delighted to announce that it has secured $100,000 in funding for its 2016 Capital Campaign for the renovation of its existing exhibition galleries, floor entrance, and Collections Study Room. This funding, from government grants, private foundations, and members of the Center’s Board, recognizes the Center’s importance as an active conduit between the book arts and contemporary art communities.  With this support we have reached a critical moment.

We need your support to complete renovations of the Center’s public space: creating a more welcoming entrance, enclosing the exhibition galleries to safeguard art, and constructing a Collection Study Room to provide climate control for the Center’s collection of fine art and reference works. Once complete in January 2017, these renovations will create a welcoming environment for visitors, artists, and students, and enhance the overall art-viewing experience.

To complete these critical projects, the Center must secure an additional $40,000.
The Center’s Board has generously pledged to match dollar-for-dollar individual donations up to $40,000 made by Sept. 15, 2016. Your contribution will be doubled!

Through generous contributions from our supporters, much of the Center’s Flatiron space has transformed dramatically in recent years. In 2011, we installed a HVAC system, replacing noisy, inefficient window air conditioners with a state-of-the-art system. In 2014, we dramatically improved accessibility by building new studio wet areas, a kitchen space, and renovating our two bathrooms to ADA standards.

Your pledge or donation will help the Center continue its mission of being an agent for change in the lives and work of hundreds of artists and students.
