May 2016: The Illustrated Accordion

Friday, May 6, 2016

KBAC Gallery
Opens May 6 during Art Hop
6:00 to 9:00 p.m.


Each year the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center (KBAC) sponsors a non-juried exhibition The Illustrated Accordion. Open to all emerging and established artists, this exhibition focuses on books created in the accordion form. The structure of an accordion book is simple: a long piece of paper is folded into pages that can be read like a book or spread open and displayed like a banner. Featuring works of book artists from all over the world, the books in this exhibit take this book form to a new level.
