Opening reception Friday, November 11; 6-9pm.

Since 1985 the Jerome Foundation has helped artists push the boundaries of contemporary book arts by supporting the creation of new book works. Through the MCBA/Jerome Book Arts Fellowships, Minnesota artists of diverse disciplines — including printers, papermakers, binders, painters, sculptors, poets, photographers, essayists and others — have created projects ranging from exquisitely crafted fine press volumes to documented performances to one-of-a-kind installations that “break the bindings” and redefine conventional notions of book form and content. This exhibition marks the culmination of the thirteenth series of Book Arts Fellowships.

Jurors for Fellowship Series XII were Wendy Fernstrum , Elaine Rutherford and Todd Thyberg. These three jurors, reflecting diverse perspectives and considerable expertise, reviewed 28 applications and selected the recipients.
