Currently showing in the library's three museum cases are the works of 12 student artists from Laurie Snyder's Book Arts and Photographic Books classes. As the students come from different majors and technical backgrounds, they bring unique perspectives to the art of the book.

On display are beautifully sewn books, accordion books and tunnel books. There are books that take playful forms and shapes, becoming objects begging to be explored. All are made of diverse materials from traditional paper to blocks of wood and feature everything from prints to woven textiles.

The exhibition runs until June 15, 2012.

Student with work on display include Michael Bussell, Jackie Capone, Zack Ingram, Rei Lem, Soozee Lim, John MacLean, Emma Munger, Melanie Ruston, Caitlin Selzer, Christian Tucci, Samantha Wilson, and Damien Worthy.

Don't forget to check out the new Library Exhibits section on the Decker Library website, where Students, Faculty and Staff will find our updated policies, information on how to reserve the museum cases for an exhibition, a calendar of recent and up and coming shows, as well as an overview of the current exhibition.
