Including works by some of Florida’s best contemporary artists, this exhibition contains fascinating and widely creative examples of books as sculptures. The first Artful Book exhibition, curated by independent Miami-based curator Barbara Young, took place in November of 2019 in conjunction with the Miami-Dade Library’s famous Book Fair which is one of the most renowned events of its kind in the country. In conjunction with LnS GALLERY, Maimi, MOAS is pleased to showcase this unique art form in the celebration of books, literature, fine art and creativity. The objects included may be crafted of the finest leathers and papers or assembled from repurposed materials or books. Often they are made of delightfully unexpected, textured materials and are as varied as their creators. Open November 13, 2021 through January 16, 2022 at Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS) during regular operating hours.
