Event description
This Hands On Artists’ Book event allows you to handle books relating to cloth, identity, and more from the CED Library's rare book vault.

About this Event

Artists’ books are simply books made by artists. Whether tactile or conceptual, they range in thematic content including the political, the sentimental, the instructive, or the purely beautiful.

Hands On Artists’ Book events allow you to handle books from the Environmental Design Library's rare book vault. For this special event, hosted at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology alongside the current exhibit Cloth That Stretches: Weaving Community Across Time and Space, a selection of books relating to cloth, fiber, sustainability, and cultural identity will be on view. Come touch, turn pages, and experience these unique art books amidst global textiles from the Hearst's collection.

Wine and light refreshments will be served. Co-hosted by David Eifler and the Hearst Museum of Anthropology.
