Thank you!
BOOKS AS ART: structure, image, text was a great success! More than 1300 came to the exhibition, attended the lectures, and participated in workshops. YOU contributed, supported, volunteered, and shared your artist books with the Fairbanks community. We couldn't have done it without you! Thank you!
