When we asked you what you love about Minnesota Center for Book Arts, here’s what we heard:

The weight of wet paper pulp. The feel of waxed bookbinding thread. The pressure of ink.

In other words, you love the book arts because it’s an experience that you can touch. And touch matters.

Our work is about connection. And we can’t do it without you! With your support, you help our community get in touch with what matters, such as:

  • Prioritizing arts education by getting art into the hands of K-12 students
  • Providing studio access and 125 annual workshops for adults of all skill levels
  • Engaging a diverse public with all-ages open houses, where visitors participate in free, hands-on book arts projects

Every dollar you give ensures that our creative community thrives. Your generosity keeps our exhibitions free, our studios world-class, and our doors open to the public seven days a week.
