‘When a book becomes art’ exhibit on display at Rogel Cancer Center
Point of View (POV) Book Arts Group is comprised of seven regional artists who create artist’s books.
Artists have long used the book form as inspiration for creating art objects that range from traditional to experimental pieces. The results often challenge popular notions of what a book is, and these books are sometimes jokingly called BSOs or book-shaped objects.
POV Book Arts Group includes: Ruth Bardentein, Barbara Brown, Dick Cruger, Alvey Jones, Karen Klein, Valerie Mann and Mike Sivak. All members of the group are working artists in the Ann Arbor/Detroit area, and several are currently, or have been, teaching artists.
Their work will be on display at the Rogel Cancer for one more week!
