Chip Schilling’s Agents of Change
We just recently ordered this book about the culling of the urban forest by book artist Chip Schilling. The photos above are of the exhibit that was done in conjunction with the book release by Schilling and David Pitman.
Schilling’s work is currently on exhibit at the Cargill Gallery on the 2nd floor of Minneapolis Central Library as part of a celebration of the first five years of the Minnesota Book Artist award. There is an opening reception this evening from 6-8 pm.
We also have books created by Regula Russelle, Jody Williams and Schilling available for viewing in Special Collections if you want to stop by when we are open (Monday-Thursday and first and third Saturdays, 10-4:30 pm).
