Rising Together is hosted by San Francisco Center for the Book from Friday, February 12–May 9, 2021.
Virtual Opening Reception on Wednesday February 17th, 5-6 PST (register via Event Brite)

"Rising Together: an Exhibition of Zines, Artists’ Books and Prints with a Social Conscience is a juried, traveling book arts exhibition organized by the College Book Art Association and hosted from 2018–2021 in conjunction with the Art Center College of Design, Center for Book Arts, Mills College, San Francisco Center for the Book, University of Iowa, University of Puget Sound and University of Utah.

The work in Rising Together demonstrates how artist books give activism a visual voice, and can serve as powerful agents in effecting positive social change on issues encompassing social justice, power, politics, the environment and more. Rising Together showcases the potential of the book arts to engage—through messaging, through critique, through action—and to speak truth to power in an era when such truth is direly needed."
