Book in Southern California," an exhibition entitled "SOCalled Books," and
a reception.

The workshop, entitled "The Altered Page," will be taught by book artist

transforming the blank page into a sculptural artist's book using
photographs, collage, found objects, and nontraditional materials such as
metal, stone and sand.  The workshop will run from Friday, April 5th and
Saturday April 6th from 9:00 to 4:00 in the Book Arts Studio, fifth floor,
J. Willard Marriott Library.

Helfgott will also give a lecture, "Out West: The Artist's Book in Southern
California." This lecture will be given by Gloria Helfgott and will explore
the artist's book as both fine art and sculptural literature. Examples of
Helfgott's work will be on display. The lecture will be held in the Gould
Auditorium on the first floor of the Marriott Library on Thursday, April
4th at 7:00 PM.

The exhibition, entitled "SOCalled Books" will open on March 28th and run
through May 9th. "SOCalled Books"  will showcase artists from southern
California whose innovative and exciting works push the limits of what
might be recognized as a book. This exhibition is free and open to the

Marriott Library. The public is also invited to attend a reception for the
exhibition on Thursday, April 4th at 5:00 pm in the Special Collections
