Containing the Muse: Artists' Books as Expression & Form

January 30 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Curriculum Gallery

Containing the Muse: Artists’ Books as Expression & Form features 15 works from the Franklin & Marshall College Library, Archives and Special Collections. Artists’ books are a form of creative expression, providing an opportunity for political, environmental, social, and personal communication. They range in size, shape, material, and formats; altering the way people can manipulate and interpret them. Depending on the angle, page, and layout the material can be viewed from multiple perspectives, providing new experiences with each interaction. 

Curated by Janie Kreines, Curator of Academic Affairs & Community Engagement at the Phillips Museum of Art, Christopher Raab, Associate Librarian, Archives & Special Collections, and Anna Boutin-Cooper, Research & Visual Arts Librarian at Franklin & Marshall College. Exhibition and programming developed in partnership with the Franklin & Marshall College Library.
