Local event for book lovers!

The Altered Book Show currently being held at Marin MOCA in Novato through May 25th.
It's dazzling and delightful and not to be missed!
Here are the specifics:

This popular event showcases the work of 150 Bay Area artists who re-imagine, re-construct and re-work discarded books to produce a highly entertaining and remarkably varied exhibition. “Visitors are so amazed by the inventive ways artists are able to transform these old books into something fresh,” says Heidi LaGrasta, Executive Director of MarinMOCA. “It's a wonderful opportunity to experience the rich diversity of technique and subject matter that these hundreds of different book artists bring to the exhibition. All 150 “book art objects’ are offered in a silent auction running from April 20 through May 25 at MarinMOCA. 

On May 25, MarinMOCA will host a Closing Reception and live auction party from 5 to 7:30 pm.
