About the exhibit...
The Bill of Rights exhibit features a series of 10 provocative book works
that exemplify the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution as art.
For each amendment, Minsky has selected a text that conveys the concept of
that right. Each book work illustrates what may happen if the right is
violated or stimulates thinking about the right in a new way.
Richard Minsky founded the Center for Book Arts in 1974 and has long
promoted the book as art. His works have been exhibited and are held by
major American museums and book arts collections, including the Getty
Center, the Yale University Arts of the Book Collection, the National
Gallery, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Minnesota Center for Book Arts is a nonprofit organization where the
literary arts meet the visual arts. MCBA provides papermaking, printmaking
and bookbinding studios for youth, family and adult classes (over 100
classes are offered each year). Studio space is also available for hourly
rental by students and artists. The gallery features four to five
exhibitions each year of traditional and contemporary book arts from around
the world. The Shop at MCBA sells the work of over 130 consignment artists
along with book arts supplies and gift items.
MCBA is located in the Open Book building in Minneapolis, with The Loft
Literary Center, Milkweed Publications, and Ruminator Books. Artists,
writers, students and area residents gather at Open Book to learn, converse
and create =8B many times on collaborative work.
