|Artists’ Books on the Environment Closing Reception
Join us on Tuesday, June 28 from 5-7 p.m. at Carnegie Mellon University, Arts Library and Special Collections, on the 4th floor of Hunt Library for a closing reception of the exhibition “Artists’ Books on the Environment.” This exhibition is currently being held in conjunction with “Too Shallow for Diving: the 21st Century is Treading Water” at the American Jewish Museum in Pittsburgh and includes books by artists in the AJM show. It features eighty works from miniature books to sculptural installations exploring every aspect of the human condition as influenced by our “natural” environment. Collectively the exhibition points to our ultimate remembering that human beings are inextricable forces within the ecological dynamic of our planet Earth and beyond.
The artists’ books exhibition continues through July 1. Works in the exhibition cases can be viewed anytime during library hours and in the Fine and Rare Book Room by appointment from Monday through Friday. For more information contact Mo Dawley, Art and Drama Librarian, 412-268-6625.
“Too Shallow for Diving: the 21st Century is Treading Water” with associated events continues at the Jewish Community Center through July 28 http://www.jccpgh.org/page/ajm
