Alice C. Sabatini Gallery staff members Brea Black and Zan Popp teach Altered Book Workshops every fall. Participants are given a book that has outlived its useful life and been discarded. They are then given the challenge of making that book into a work of art.
Give a discarded book a new life by transforming it into a work of art. Anyone is welcome to bring an altered book to the Gallery before 9pm on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012. The books will be on display in the library from Nov. 6, 2012 – Jan. 2, 2013.
