Altered Book Narrative Exhibit

Altered Book NarativeAn Altered Book Narrative show with works created by Kentucky School of Art at Spalding University students, is currently on display in the first floor of Spalding University’s Library.

The public is welcome and encouraged to check out this creative and engaging collection of works. April 29 – May 31.

The works were inspired by the book sculptures of British artist, Su Blackwell. Drawing inspiration from fictional stories, memories or personal themes, current Kentucky School of Art  three-dimensional design students created their own personal narratives through paper.

Students repurposed books to serve as stage and material; each work captures an individualized handling of material and sensitivity to space and object. These miniature worlds are full of small and hidden details, which beckon the viewer to engage in close exploration
