See artworks which draw attention to the long and remarkable history of the book. See unconventional treatments such as cutting, weaving, tearing, burning, and shredding, as artists transform books into sculptures, animation, drawings, and paintings. In the museum’s bridge space, enter an immersive installation to see and hear the story of the very cool unnatural forest created entirely from books. Walk down a paper trail to tree trunks created from old book covers, a waterfall created from hundreds of attached pages, live foliage hanging from the ceiling and delicate paper mushrooms growing out from the walls and windows.
Eats & Treats: Get energy for creativity with seasonal, farm-to-table food at Dig Inn (350 Hudson Street between King & Charlton) or sit-down Westville (210 W 10th St). Also visit Jacques Torre's nearby chocolate museum.
