    “May You Live in Interesting Times”
    A Book as Art Juried Exhibition

    https://nau.edu/artmuseum/prospectus/

    The Northern Arizona University Art Museum announces a juried exhibition to be mounted in Spring of 2020. Open from February 4 until April 18, the exhibition, titled “May You Live in Interesting Times,” will present new works conceived within the conceptual category of the Book as Art, including Altered Books. The Museum invites submissions on significant themes derived from the issues we face here and around the world, including, but not limited to, environmental challenges, politics, immigration, race, and nationalism.

    Our 2020 exhibition will embrace widely varying conceptions of the “book” created in an equally diverse range of media. The Museum is producing this event in the firm belief that, in the age of virtual media, there is still a profoundly powerful effect to be drawn from prolonged interaction with a physical artifact in a “screen-free” environment.
