MCBA Main Gallery

6–8pm CT

Join us for a closing reception celebrating the 2022 MCBA Prize! On view through Saturday, October 15, this international exhibition features artists’ books by the 19 semi-finalists, four finalists, and ultimate winner of the 2022 MCBA Prize, who will be announced at our Winner Reveal & Artist Talk on Friday, September 23. Selected by Juror Megan N. Liberty, these impeccable, diverse works were sent to us from across the US and from countries including Egypt, Germany, India, Mexico, and Sweden. Two local artists included in the show, Savannah Bustillo (finalist) and Wendy Fernstrum (semi-finalist), will be in attendance.

Established in 2009, The MCBA Prize is an international artist’s book award that honors excellence in new work from across the wide spectrum of book art. It can be used as a bellwether to measure where the field is going. 

Come wander the gallery, learn more about these stunning works, and enjoy refreshments with creative company in the cafe area!
