Invest in a future of diverse voices and creative discovery.

“A hidden gem.”

“My favorite place in the Twin Cities.”

“Where I became an artist.”



This is just a sampling of good things that we hear about Minnesota Center for Book Arts. There are few places like it in the world, and no place like it in Minnesota.

During a visit to MCBA, you may see a 4th grade science class receiving instruction in paper engineering, families exploring an exhibition on fine bindings, artists preparing fibers for handmade paper sculptures, and printers inking wood type on an antique printing press.

Your support connects artists, students, and booklovers of all ages with programs that celebrate the art of the book. Your generosity keeps our exhibitions free, our studios world-class, and our doors open to the public seven days a week.

As we look to a new year of creative programs, we have good news to share. Thanks to generous funding from The Windgate Foundation, all gifts made to Minnesota Center for Book Arts will be matched, dollar for dollar, through December 31, 2017. Make a gift today to unlock these matching funds and double your impact.
