MCBA’s Unabashedly Bookish Bash

Unabashedly Bookish Bash
Minnesota Center for Book Arts
Saturday, July 23, 2016; 7-10pm

Free and open to the public

The Unabashedly Bookish Bash was a 2016 benefit to support MCBA’s artist programs. Below is a list of the night’s events:

Groove to live music from Dan Newton and the Café Accordion Trio in our transformed studio and gallery space, “retro”-fitted with paper lanterns and plastic lawn flamingos.

Enjoy delicious food from Pimento Jamaican Kitchen, sip on local craft beer and cocktails, and treat yourself to our tropical island sundae bar, featuring Izzy’s ice cream and sorbet.

Shop the Art Mart, featuring donated work by local, national, and international artists, a “Cover-up” gallery of altered books, and other print treasures.

Get printing! Print your own commemorative letterpress postcard at one of our presses.

General admission was $25

VIP treatment was $125 — included an exclusive reception from 6-7pm, early access to the Art Mart, and a signature cocktail served in a commemorative glass.
