Join the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center for our 11th annual Illustrated Accordion exhibition.
Each year the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center (KBAC) sponsors a non-juried exhibition The Illustrated Accordion, showing in the KBAC Gallery in late spring. Open to all emerging and established artists, this exhibition focuses on books created in the accordion form. There is a $15 entry fee to participate in the exhibition and the deadline for entry is April 29 at 5 p.m. Click here for information about entering the exhibition.
The Illustrated Accordion 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.
Thanks to our wonderful intern Sabrina Desourdy for the photography.
Every book that has been entered in previous Illustrated Accordion exhibits are available to view through our website.
