2010: A Year in Review

The JCBA guys with Jane Siberry
2010 is over & what a year it has been for the Center. We featured our first annual Letterpress Appreciation Day/ Open House in August. Superstars of the book arts world Daniel Kelm, Marshall Weber & Johanna Drucker all paid us a visit & participated in discussions & lectures. We had two salon concerts, Jane Siberry & Matt Alber, which both sold out. Letterpress printer Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. visited to discuss the exhibit of his work, Proceed & Be Bold, & the documentary of the same name. The Inter-Florida Fluxus tour performed at the Center in honor of the exhibit, the Carbon Alternative. Other exhibits included in 2010 were Wanderlust, the work of John Eric Broaddus & Graphix, the current exhibit here at the library. Arthur Jaffe & Dr. Karen Leader has started a research project on tattoos & the students of FAU who have them, with the end result being a film titled Stories on the Skin. And finally, we've been working hard to raise money for a paper making studio & it seems like the project is underway, with hopes of it being up & running in 2011. So, we've worked hard & we're tired, but we're always happy with the continuing support from our fans & devoted followers. We wouldn't be up & running without you. We're looking forward to another great year!
