Overview:

Come explore Altered Books and Book Arts with MarinMOCA at this well-loved annual event. The Sixth Annual Altered Book/Book Arts Exhibition and Fundraiser displays the work of over 100 Bay Area artists who re-construct and re-work books to produce a highly entertaining and remarkably varied exhibition. Attendees are invited to bring their friends and walk around the galleries to bid on their favorite book art. The silent auction is posted for bidding during the exhibit from April 18-May 23. It will culminate in the live closing auction on May 23rd, where the auctioneer will auction off a selected group of altered books. Wine, tasty hors d'oeuvres and desserts will be served. A concurrent exhibition in the Ron Collins Gallery is Bookworks: San Quentin Prison Arts Project. This program of the William James Association will display artworks created by inmates at San Quentin Prison and is dedicated to providing all individuals with the most meaningful art experience possible. This event supports the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art’s ongoing exhibitions and community programs. MarinMOCA is committed to creating a unique model that merges the talent and leadership of artists with the qualities of a museum. The Altered Book Show exemplifies MarinMOCA’s ongoing mission to connect art and artists with the greater community.
