Creativity Takes Flight in this Unique Show by The Guild of Book Workers

RIT?s <http://wally.rit.edu/cary/>Cary Library <http://wally.rit.edu/cary> is pleased to be hosting an exciting traveling exhibition called ?In Flight: The Guild of Book Workers? 2003-2005 Triennial Exhibition. This unique collection of ?flight-related book arts? commemorates the centennial anniversary (December 17, 2003) of the Wright Brothers? first flight in a very creative manner. The show is made up of 51 different pieces created by Guild members specifically for this juried show. The traveling exhibit lands on the RIT campus on March 10th and will be available for viewing through April 22nd, 2005.

Cary Graphic Arts Collection is part of the greater RIT Libraries, and is located on the 2nd floor of Building 5 on the RIT Henrietta campus. The display will largely reside in Cary?s showcase windows (viewable during all open hours of Wallace Library), while some pieces will be displayed in smaller cases within the Cary Library itself (viewable during open hours of Cary; M-F; 9am-Noon; 1pm-5pm). There is no admission charge to view this unique collection.

An ?Opening Reception? is planned (at Cary Library) for Thursday, April 7th from 4pm ? 6pm. The reception will be open to everyone.
