Since 1974, the Center for Book Arts has been committed to artistic expression and exploration of the structural and conceptual possibilities of the Book. This year we are reaffirming our commitment to provide opportunities for all to further their creative indulgence—as a site to share narratives; generate new discourses and ideas; and build creative communities bound by collaboration and respect.

The theme of this exhibition is centered in the artistic exploration of Sanctuary; how can the book arts be used as a tool to create and facilitate notions of inclusion and safety? How can the book be used to imagine new possibilities for Sanctuary? Artists delve into the conceptuality and physicality of safe space creation, in conjunction with the theoretical and applied practices of bookmaking.

Artists Talk will be September 19, at 6:30 pm
