[BKARTS] Book Arts Conference, New Haven, CT April 2007 Update



Book Arts Enthusiasts,
We have been able to add one final session to the "At the Turn of the Centuries: The Influence of Early 20th Century Book Arts on Contemporary Artists' Books" conference to be held at Yale University on April 13, 2007:


Timothy G. Young, Associate Curator of Modern Books and Manuscripts, Beinecke Library, will discuss "Language Beyond Language," using artists books from the Beinecke's collection that employ the use of pseudo-, quasi-, and sub-verbal language.

A few seats remain at the time of this posting (Feb. 15, 11:15am EST). The other four afternoon sessions are currently filled. Even if you are not able to register for the one-hour afternoon session, there are still many seats available for the morning lectures by Marcia Reed, Stephen Bury and Angela Lorenz. I encourage you to sign up for the morning session, explore one of the museums or libraries of Yale in the afternoon, then join us for the closing reception.

The Yale University Art Gallery has been recently renovated and is stunning. The Yale Center for British Art is an amazing space with superb collections.
The Sterling Memorial Library and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library also feature unusual architecture and have their own exhibit programs.
You could even see the "Yale Whale," an ice rink designed by Eero Saarinen and recently voted one of the top 150 buildings (#149) in America by a new survey by the American Institute of Architects.
