We are proud to announce Geographies: the Midwest Examined is on display now at Michigan State University. The exhibit is in the Main Library (in the cases outside of the Fine Arts Library located in 4W).
Exhibit Dates: March 28 – May 31, 2016
Next Location: Iowa City, Iowa
The show will be on display during the Midwest GBW Annual Meeting which will take place in East Lansing, Michigan, April 22-23, 2016! Just another great reason to come to this year’s meeting! Register here.
Our members responded to a call for any bookworks (including: bindings, artists’ books, calligraphy, broadsides, etc.) that relates to the exhibition’s theme of the Midwest or the individual states of Iowa, Ohio, Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kansas, Michigan and Nebraska. This expansive geographic area encompasses a variety of landscapes and has produced its share of artists and writers providing much opportunity for interpretation. What resulted is a wonderful range of pieces!
Special thanks to Bexx Caswell and the Graphic Services team at MSU for putting this beautiful exhibit together!
