Library Exhibit Showcases Artists’ Books

Posted by UCSB Library on November 10, 2010

In celebration of our three millionth volume the UCSB Library is hosting an exhibit called “Exploring the Boundaries:  The Artist Book”.

The displays are open to the public and are located in the Department of Special Collections on the 3rd floor of Davidson Library, the exhibit area in the 1st floor hallway of Davidson Library, and in the lobby of the Arts Library.

Works displayed include items from the library collections, as well as those by UCSB faculty, current students, and alumni.

The three-millionth volume, “Trees” by Charles Hobson, will be on exhibit in Special Collections on a limited basis.
