Altered (Eaarth) Book Exhibit opens

On Tuesday 26 April the Altered Eaarth Book exhibit opened in the Library. The Exhibit celebrates Earth Day (April 22) and was the result of a collaboration between Prof Denny May (English), Prof Lisa Hill (Communication Design), Prof Rebecca Kamen (Fine Arts), Prof Angela Terry (Communication Design) and the Library Staff. Students from Art 132 and ART 140 created the altered books. All of the sculptures are re-purposed copies of Bill McKibben's Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet.

The sculptures, including Eaarth Primer created by Lisa Hill and Rebecca Kamen (see Wed April 20) will be on display in the Library until summer.
