Altered Books

"What happens to a book when it outlives its purpose on the shelf? If it falls into the right hands, it is transformed into an art object that may or may not resemble its original form as a book. An altered book is any book, old or new, that has been recycled by creative means into a work of art. Works created by national and international artists, college students, community members and Minneapolis youth will be exhibited at galleries throughout Minneapolis from January through March 2008."
