Book + Art = You!

As this semester winds down, don’t just hit the books. Make one!

For the conclusion of this semester’s Book + Art festival, undergraduate students from Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are invited to participate in a juried exhibition of student artists’ books, to be held at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Hanes Art Center. Works selected for the exhibition will be displayed in the John and June Allcott Undergraduate Gallery at UNC’s Hanes Art Center. From the works selected for exhibition, one will be awarded best-in-show honors.


  • The exhibit is open to undergraduate students from Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill.
  • All entries must be original work by the artist.
  • There is no entry fee.
  • Limit three entries per person.
  • Completed entries are due by Dec. 17th, 2010.

You’ll find instructions on submitting your work at the student exhibition’s website.
