2008 Artist-in-Residence Spotlight

An exhibition featuring new work produced here at the Center during their 2008 residency by emerging artists Cesar Cornejo, Hadassa Goldvicht, Wennie Huang, Ivan Monforte, and Zoë Sheehan Saldaña. These New York-based emerging artists are offered space, time and support to explore the production and exhibition of artist’s books and related work in twelve-month residencies. The purpose of this program is to promote experimentation in making book art. The Center especially encourages artists from all disciplinary backgrounds and from culturally diverse backgrounds.
