Join the Library and the Aesthetics of Research for our 2018-2019 installment of The Book to Art Club featuring HG Wells’ classic War of the Worlds. Started by the Library-As-Incubator Project, the Book to Art Club is a book and art-making club that exists virtually and in-person at libraries around the world.
Because we want as many points of entry as possible for our first go, any edition of War of the Worlds will do (and the varying illustrations are a bonus). Stop by the library to check out one of our copies, or get one through inter-library loan (or scope out the versions of the tales available online.)
Each session, we will be exploring a variety of art and craft techniques, culminating in a year’s-end collaborative project.
The Aesthetics of Research is an ongoing initiative dedicated to exploring how resources shape and inform artistic practice across disciplines—from the tangible (print and electronic media, studios/workspaces, supply sources) to the intangible (workshops, tutorials, creative communities). With a slant toward non-traditional, indie, and underground art forms, the initiative seeks to connect artists to both resources and each other, forming a thriving network of like-minded creatives.
