Join us for an Artists’ Book Open House at the Fenwick Library Special Collections Research Center!
 
For this month’s event we take on the theme of invisibility, and present these works as an extension of the discussions happening around Artworks for Freedom, and Fenwick Gallery’s ongoing exhibition, Call and Response. These artists’ books explore issues of marginalization and highlight the perspectives and voices of the “invisible,” those persons and communities at the edges of society.
 
Visitors will have an opportunity for hands-on interaction with these materials, and to learn how Mason students and researchers can use these materials as a source of visual, formal, and thematic inspiration.
 
The Special Collections Research Center is located in 2400 Fenwick on the second floor of Fenwick Library.
