The book becomes art at MarinMOCA’s 10th Annual Altered Book Exhibit and Fundraiser. Marin’s most unique art show features over 180 original book art objects, created by artists who combine compelling messages with creative technique. Fans and art collectors will see an innovative display of Altered Books. Mary Austin, Founder of the San Francisco Center for the Book, and Donna Seager, of Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley will jury this year’s exhibition for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, honorable mentions, and a new award honoring event founder and artist, Eleanor Murray. The Eleanor Murray award is a $200 cash prize and will be made to the artist submitting a work which is beautifully-executed and demonstrates a unique and exceptional artistic vision. The artworks are eagerly sought by book art aficionados, who return year after year to see the show.
We invite the public to view and bid on their favorite works during the silent auction from April 27 – June 1. The Closing Party and Live Auction will be held on June 1, 5-8 pm, when all the book art objects will be auctioned to the highest bidder. All proceeds from the auction support our exhibitions and programming.
