The Journey—2nd Annual Altered Book Art Project
A Silent auction of original art works created for the recent collaboration between the Palm Springs Public Library and the Palm Springs Art Museum will occur this Sat. May 10th, at 3:00 p.m. at the Art Museum.
Twenty-one locally and nationally known artists created original works of art from books, videos, DVDS and CDs weeded out of the Library’s collection. On Saturday all of the art works will be on display together and then auctioned off at a silent auction held at the Art Museum during its spring Art Party ’08 all-day art festival. All proceeds from the silent auction will equally benefit the Library and the Art Museum.
The works were unveiled at a public reception and artist presentation on Sun. April 13th and have been on display at both the Library and the Art Museum. The Altered Books Art creations include a diverse range of interesting and highly visual art works, including masks, sculptures, digital photographs, folded books and even a quilt made out of discarded books.
The Palm Springs Art Museum is located at 101 Museum Drive, Palm Springs CA 92262. The silent auction will take place in “Zone 101” in the Hoover Gallery on the main level beginning at 3:00 p.m.
