Artists’ Books: Student Works from the MTSU Book Arts Program
Spring, 2012

A new exhibit featuring work by students from MTSU’s Department of Art enrolled in ART 3550: Book Arts I during the 2011 fall semester. 

This exhibit showcases 20 pieces created by MTSU students enrolled in the Department of Art’s Book Arts I. Students combined traditional book techniques and materials with handmade and hand-painted papers, origami-folding techniques, etchings, photography, collage and innovative pop-up and 3D elements to turn the basic model of an accordion-style book into unique and expressive creations.

Diverse objects and forms, from coffee cans to computer disks, make an unexpected appearance and expand the traditional book artists’ repertoire of materials. Each work displayed is a unique item and reflects the learning goals of the classroom.
