Students from all disciplines are invited to learn about the art and craft of bookmaking with prize-winning Cuban book artist Rolando Estévez. If you have a favorite poem or short text you would like to convert into a handmade book, please bring it to the workshop, although we will also have poems and texts on hand. Art supplies will be provided as well as light snacks.
For a taste of the detailed and expressive book art by Estévez, stop by the exhibit The Plurality of Love: Poetry and Art in the Works of Cuban Artist Rolando Estévez in the Audubon Room of the Hatcher Graduate Library.
Sponsored by the U-M Department of Anthropology; Center for World Performance Studies; International Institute; LSA Dean's Office; Institute for the Humanities; and the University Library in conjunction with a research project on Bridges to Cuba led by Professor Ruth Behar, Department of Anthropology.
