It’s that time of year again, a time where we can look forward to Spring and Stephanie Milanowski’s Class Project! This year 9 Artists Books entries are on display at the library. The exhibit will remain on display through March 14.
You can view the past participants on Digital Commons, where the library has been archiving past Altered Book Art Projects. Last year’s winning entry was Samantha Gindl’s piece “Consumer, Meet Producer.”
