Overview:

Rhiannon Alpers Book Arts Talk: April 23, 4-5pm at Hamilton Community Center (across the street) Live Auction Closing Party: June 4, 5-7:30 pm Artists use the book as a springboard for artistic expression in this popular exhibit for all ages. All artworks are offered in a silent auction running from April 23 through June 4 at MarinMOCA. Viewers have seven weeks to carefully admire each piece of art and determine their bids. On June 4, they will be auctioned off to the highest bidder in a Live Auction Closing Party from 5 to 7:30 pm. The last night ends with hors d'oeuvres, raffle prizes, and a live auction of selected pieces from the exhibition. This event supports the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art’s ongoing exhibitions and community programs. The Altered Book Show exemplifies MarinMOCA’s ongoing mission to connect art and artists with the greater community. We are thrilled to announce that we have again received a $15,000 grant from the Donald O. and Ronald R. Collins Fund of the Marin Community Foundation. The grant was awarded to support MarinMOCA’s annual Altered Book fundraiser and is in honor of Eleanor Murray who championed the event seven years ago. The grant from the Collins Fund will be used to match all of the winning bids, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $15,000. This is a great opportunity to see the Bay Area’s vibrant book art scene and support MarinMOCA at the same time.
