11th Annual Altered Book Exhibit and Fundraiser

Opening reception: July 25, 5pm-7pm
Live Closing Auction: August 29, 5pm-8pm

The book becomes art at MarinMOCA’s 11th Annual Altered Book Exhibit and Fundraiser. Marin’s most unique art show features 150 original book art objects, created by artists who combine compelling messages with creative technique. Fans and art collectors will see an innovative display of Altered Books. Mary Austin, Founder of the San Francisco Center for the Book, and Donna Seager, of Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley will jury this year’s exhibition for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, honorable mentions. The artworks are eagerly sought by book art aficionados, who return year after year to see the show.

We invite the public to view and bid on their favorite works during the silent auction from July 25 – August 29. The Closing Party and Live Auction will be held on August 29, 5-8 pm, when all the book art objects will be auctioned to the highest bidder. MarinMOCA is extremely grateful for the artists who are donating their work. This event is MarinMOCA’s biggest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds from the auction support our exhibitions and programming.
