Decker doesn't just lend materials on art. We exhibit them too.

Decker Library hosts exhibitions that typically rotate on a monthly basis. Decker staff curate exhibitions of items in our special collections and archives as well as items available for circulation.

MICA students, staff, and faculty can submit a proposal to curate library displays and exhibits. Use this form to submit a proposal. Questions? Contact Access Services at circ@mica.edu.



April 8 - May 3, 2023

Flagged is an exhibition showcasing the unique and dynamic creations of the students of the Artists Book class at MICA. We explore the intersection of visual art and literature through flag books, showcasing our technical skills and imaginative ideas.

Each flag book is a work of art, with pages that unfold and reveal intricate designs, rich textures, and compelling narratives. As students of the Artists Book class, we have drawn inspiration from nature, history, personal experiences, and current events.


Through this exhibition, we invite you to experience the beauty and magic of flag books and engage with our diverse and creative expressions. We are grateful for the opportunity to showcase our work and share our passion for artists' books with the MICA community and beyond.
