OPENING RECEPTION: October 20 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Play asks you to step away from your cellphones and televisions and tune into your childish spirit to imagine, create, build, move and interact with books as toys and toys as books. This exhibition is a collaboration with Art Books Cleveland designed to challenge and reimagine the concept of books.
This exhibition is part of the Morgan’s participation in this year’s Octavofest, Northeast Ohio’s celebration of book and paper arts. This exhibition is offered in conjunction with a wide array of book and paper arts activities throughout the region during October and beyond. Exhibits, workshops, and demonstrations are being added regularly to the schedule, which can be seen at octavofest.com.
Play features artist books by Margaret Bakke, Bette Bonder, Diane Britt, Phyllis Brody, Sarah Clague, Susie Cobbledick, Bonné de Blas, Sean Dryoff, Gene Epstein, Jane Hammond, Clarissa Jakobsons, Laura Martin, Rachel Morris, Melissa O’Grady, Wendy Partridge, Carole Phipps, Cris Takacs, Anne Weissman, Tony Williams and Shari Wolf.
