This exhibit seeks mixed media artwork that modifies a book from its original form by altering its state or meaning. Altered books can integrate text with sculptural and material richness to create a multi-sensory reading experience. Final pieces can take many different forms including sculpture, collage, assemblage or jewelry as long as ‘the book’ is evident in its final appearance. Books from any source utilizing any non-perishable medium are eligible. All work must be original and executed within the last three years.
