An Exhibition at the Colburn Gallery in Williams Hall, UVM
January 22 - February 15, 2018 (Monday-Friday)
Gallery Tour: February 14, 12 pm
For over 50 years, the Department of Art and Art History and Special Collections have been making, collecting and sharing artists’ books. Drawing on the rich resources in Special Collections, "Illuminating Words" celebrates book arts at UVM.
In the 1970s, printmakers in the Art Department—faculty and students— were combining images and text to create books that found their way to the shelves in Special Collections. Over the years, Art faculty and Special Collections librarians have worked together to develop an outstanding artists’ book collection that is eclectic, broad, and deep. Curated by librarian Prudence Doherty, this exhibition features works made by UVM students and faculty as well as impressive selections from the library's collection.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-656-2138.
