These final presentations led by architecture critic give the 10 participants of the Art Omi: Architecture Residency an opportunity to pin-up and show their projects at the conclusion of the two-week residency.

The public is welcome to see the early stages of the thinking and design process of making architecture in a classic jury-style review.

The reviews are arranged into two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon with a lunch break in between (where the public can grab a bite at the Cafe!).

Following all the juried presentations, everyone is invited to enjoy a reception with conversation, snacks and refreshments, and get to know the 2018 Architecture Residents.

Free and open to the public.

What can we do when one page isn’t enough for a work of art? How do we define book art and what possibilities does this creative process present? This class will focus on creating one-of-a-kind artist books. Students will have a chance to create one or multiple books using collected mementos such as ticket stubs, hand-written notes, scraps of wrapping paper or old photographs as well as original works on paper. They will be introduced to simple bookbinding techniques and different book forms. We will consider the importance of page sequence and how pairing certain works together can alter how we experience the individual pieces. Students will repurpose old drawings and collages and use text, images, and patterns from vintage magazines to create new artworks, poems, and stories. Students will see how a seemingly random collection of papers can come together to tell a personal story. There are no limits as to what students can create! Materials will be provided, but students are also encouraged to collect materials they would like to include.
