8th Annual
Altered Book & Book Arts Exhibition
Our Largest Fundraiser of the Year!

Exhibit and Silent Auction: April 15 - May 20th
Opening Reception: April 15th, 5-7pm
Live Auction and Closing Party: May 20th 5-8pm

8th Annual Altered Book & Book Arts Exhibit and Auction will open April 15th and run through May 20th. This exhibit is unique in that the book becomes art, featuring 150 original book art objects, donated by many generous community-minded Bay Area artists. The altered books will be on view for our Silent Auction for five weeks, closing with a Live Auction on May 20th, 5-8PM, where they are auctioned off to the highest bidder. MarinMOCA is extremely grateful for the artists who are donating their works and the camaraderie of our expert curator to juror a selection of outstanding pieces. This year’s juror is Mary Austin, Co-Founder of the San Francisco Center for the Book, and avid book art lover and collector. The exhibit is free to the public. All proceeds from the auction support MarinMOCA’s exhibitions and programming.

Double your bid with the $15,000 challenge grant!
This year MarinMOCA is pleased to announce that we have again received a $15,000 challenge grant from the Donald O. and Ronald R. Collins Fund of the Marin Community Foundation. The grant was awarded to support MarinMOCA’s annual Altered Book fundraiser and is in honor of Eleanor Murray who championed the event eight years ago. The challenge grant will match winning bids dollar for dollar up to $15,000, effectively doubling each winning bid!

We are so excited to continue celebrating the Bay Area’s vibrant book arts community with our eighth Altered Book Show!
