"Book It" -- Starting This Evening

The Harrison Center for the Arts, 1505 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis, presents Book It from 6 to 9 p.m. today (1 August), in conjunction with the University Library of Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis and the IUPUI Herron Art Library.

The Book It show promotes artists’ books as a field in the fine arts. This event will include an exhibit of artists’ books, plus a talk by IU Bloomington professor, Tony White, speaking on themes from the Herron book arts collection (6:15 p.m.) and a special hands-on presentation and a talk by nationally recognized book arts dealers, Bill and Vicki Stewart of Vamp & Tramp Booksellers, LLC (7:15 p.m.).

In the gym is “Bookish,” an interactive installation that will cross-pollinate fine arts with scrapbooking craft, and performing in the courtyard at 8 p.m. is Wolfy.

The artwork hangs through 30 August. For more information, email or call 317:396-3886.
