Milligan Libraries’ Fifth Annual Book+ART Exhibit: Books as the raw material for creativity!

Milligan Libraries’ Fall event, Book+ART marked its fifth year during this year’s Homecoming weekend. Book+ART, which serves as a nice complement (a bookend event, if you will) to our annual Spring Edible Books Festival, is wonderful way for the library to engage Milligan College students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

The premise of Book+ART is simple. Books serve as sources of information, knowledge, and inspiration. As physical objects, books are aesthetically pleasing. And as a raw material, books can also serve as a unique medium for creativity. The library invites the Milligan College community to use provided discarded books and transform them into works of art.

This year we had 14 entries from 9 persons. The winner of our random draw for a $25 Amazon gift card was Occupational Therapy student Lindsey Keys. Congratulations Lindsey! Milligan Libraries would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Book+ART event. Here are photos of this year’s entries…
