Carlisle Borough Branch
Goodyear Gallery, Dickinson College
October 5 - November 5, 2010
Organized in conjunction with Jennifer Kniesch and Brooke Wiley
Carlisle Borough Branch consisted of approximately 80 books acquired in July, 2010, from thrift stores, junk shops, and used bookstores in Carlisle, PA, and neighboring communities. It also included an exhibition of artworks generated from its holdings. Beginning in mid-August, students, faculty and others in the Dickenson community had access to these books in order to produce work for the exhibition. The work was hung salon style, and library visitors were encouraged to continue making and displaying their works for the duration of the show. Free scanners and photocopiers were provided to encourage this activity.
Works from this exhibition have been cataloged by Jennifer Kniesch and posted at Omeka.
