ARTISTS OPPORTUNITY:

"MCBA / Jerome Foundation Book Arts Mentorship Series VII”

Applications are now being accepted for MCBA / Jerome Foundation Book Arts Mentorship Series VII. Please read all eligibility and application guidelines carefully.

Application Guideline Information: MCBA_Information.pdf

The Book Arts Mentorship is an artist development program aimed at introducing book arts to emerging artists whose primary medium is in another discipline. There are many reasons to explore book arts as a new artistic medium. As a highly malleable and versatile form of expression, book arts extend the possibilities of other art forms. You can create a conceptual space. Experiment with sequence and visual or verbal narrative. Use book art forms to extend, explore, document or reexamine work produced in other artistic disciplines.

Since 1985, the Jerome Foundation has helped artists push the boundaries of contemporary book arts by supporting the creation of new work. Book arts projects funded by thirteen series of Fellowships and four prior series of Mentorships range from exquisitely crafted fine press volumes and sculptural books to documented performances and one-of-a-kind installations that “break the bindings” and redefine conventional notions of book form.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Tuesday, September 4, 2018; 11:59 pm
