1 + 1 = 3    The Artists’  Book:  More than the Sum of its Parts
Scripps College Press, Sheets 100
COST: $90

Harriet Bart brings her artist’s perspective to this workshop
on the creative process.
There are questions to ask: What makes an artist’s book a work of art?
What is the alchemy that transforms image/object/text into a work of art?
How does one develop a statement of purpose that can serve as a guide through creative work?
There are answers to be found.
The search for answers will include a series of warm-up exercises
designed to enhance imagination and explore creativity.
Explore the conceptual thinking that goes into the
planning and design of a work of book art. Participants will work
with text, found objects, and a variety of materials to create
text/object/book “sketches” that will inspire future projects.
Develop a brief statement of purpose, a personal manifesto of your art.
Come see how it all adds up.

“Known for her large-scale sculpture and installation projects,
the Minneapolis-based Bart draws inspiration from
her steadfast engagement with books and the written word.
These elements are central to her gallery-sized installations
as well as to her smaller sculptures and artist’s books.”
Samantha Rippner, Assistant Curator
Prints and Drawings
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Spring 2004
