Celebrate book and paper artists at Octavofest, a wide-ranging series of events held throughout October 2010 across Greater Cleveland.
CIA's own Barbara Stanczak and Cris Rom will be kicking off Octavofest—a city-wide, month-long celebration of book and paper arts—by participating in a panel discussion at Cleveland Public Library’s Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium on Friday, October 1 at 6pm. Also on the panel will be Bonné de Blas, director of Art Books Cleveland.
Barbara Stanczak, a professor in the Institute’s Foundation program and a 1990 CIA graduate, will talk about her experiences of what a book means to students today and show both 2D and 3D examples of books made by CIA students over the last 30 years.
Cris Rom, director of the Gund Library, will provide an overview of the artists' books movement and show examples from the Gund Library's collection of 1,400 books made by artists.
In addition, there will be a series of display of artists’ books in the Gund Library’s gallery area every weekday (9am to 4pm) for the entire month of October.
