Cristine Rom: Cleveland Institute of Art’s Artist Book Collection
Over the past three decades the Cleveland Institute of Art’s artists books collection has grown to almost 1,700 books representing North American artists, Western Europe, South and Central America, and Asia. Books in this collection date from the 1960s to the present and include some rare and historically significant “classics.” While the collection has some unique books and some books made by institute students, most of the books are multiples by professional artists who have turned to the book form for artistic expression and experimentation. Rom, Library Director and curator of the collection, will present an overview of the artists’ books movement and the development of the institute’s nationally respected collection.
All NOBS Forums are FREE and open to the public.
The forum will be held at Loganberry Books, 13015 Larchmere Boulevard, Shaker Heights 44120. There are many events at Loganberry Books. See their website for more details on upcoming events, including NOBS Forums.
