The book becomes art at MarinMOCA’s 9th Annual Altered Book Exhibit and Fundraiser.

Marin’s most popular art show features 150 original book art objects, created by artists who combine provocative messages with inventive technique. Fans and art collectors will see an innovative display of Altered Books.

Mary Austin, Co-Founder of the San Francisco Center for the Book, will curate a selection of outstanding award-winning pieces. The artworks are eagerly sought by book art aficionados, who return year after year to see the show.

 

We invite the public to view and bid on their favorite works during the silent auction from April 28 – June 2.

The Closing Party and Live Auction will be held on June 2, 5 – 8 pm, when all the book art objects will be auctioned to the highest bidder.

 

MarinMOCA is extremely grateful for the artists who are donating their work. This event is MarinMOCA’s biggest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds from the auction support our exhibitions and programming.

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 challenge grant will match winning bids dollar for dollar up to $15,000, effectively doubling each winning bid.
