Books tell stories through the images and words on their pages.
For local artists, a book can tell a different story when repurposed as art.
A collection of these altered pieces by various artists will be on view in the Waupaca Area Public Library’s next exhibit, “Altered Books.”
An interactive station within the exhibit will also allow visitors to create their own altered book craft.
The exhibit, which runs April 13 through May 23, is being held in conjunction with Waupaca BookFest.
The library will host an opening night reception from 5-7 p.m. Monday, April 13, in the lower-level exhibit room.
Refreshments will be served, and all are invited to view the artwork and meet the artists.
On Saturday, May 2, visitors of all ages may make an altered book at the MakerSpace.
This is a joint event with the library’s Book-to-Art Club.
The MakerSpace will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the lower-level meeting rooms.
The exhibit is open during library hours and is free to the public.
