University Libraries are exhibiting a unique collection of altered books at the University of South Dakota with “Bound and Unbound II: Altered Book Exhibition,” now through Friday, Dec. 20.

Altered books are a mixed media artwork that changes a book from its original form, altering works that have been manipulated through various processes like cutting, painting, tearing and collage. Final pieces in the exhibition are featured in a display on the second floor of University Libraries and showcase 45 pieces from 32 artists from Argentina, Canada, England, Hungary, Spain and the United States. The juror for the exhibition is Karen Bondarchuk, foundation area coordinator and associate professor at the Frostic School of Art, Western Michigan University.

“Bound and Unbound II: Altered Book Exhibition” is photographed and cataloged, and has been placed in the Digital Library of South Dakota at http://bit.ly/un-bound. The exhibition is also open to the public during library operating hours (www.usd.edu/library/hours.cfm). More information is also available on the Web at www.usd.edu/library. A photo of Spanish artist Amparo B. Wieden’s “El juego” is available for download at www.usd.edu/press/news/images/releases/BoundUnbound_II.jpg.
