CitySpace Gallery Exhibit: Monumental Ideas in Miniature Books

PCA is proud to partner with The Virginia Arts of the Book Center (VABC) to present “Monumental Ideas in Miniature Books” in the CitySpace Gallery in March.

“Monumental Ideas in Miniature Books” is a curated traveling collection of 100 small artist books produced by local and international artists. It is an educational and collaborative project aimed at encouraging artists to produce books that can be shared readily, and then distributing them to as wide an audience as possible. This is the third time it has come to Charlottesville.

The exhibition features small-sized “object-books” that expand the traditional definition of a book beyond merely a carrier of text, to an object that functions as three-dimensional sculpture. Also on display will be the miniature books from the “Bakers Dozen” project at the Virginia Arts of the Book Center, completed in 2014 by VABC artists.

There will be a First Fridays opening reception from 5:30-7:00pm on Friday, March 6 at CitySpace (located at 100 5th NE on the Downtown Mall). This event is FREE and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

The exhibit will remain on display through March 28, 2015. There will also be an exhibit by local photographer Stacey Evans on display inside the PCA office within CitySpace.

CitySpace is open to the public Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm. CitySpace is located at 100 5th Street NE on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. To learn more, visit www.charlottesvillearts.org.
