Barbara Maloutas: 2013-14 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the 3-day College Book Arts Association (CBAA) Conference at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City from January 2-54, 2014. The conference coincided with an opportunity to promote the Ben Maltz Gallery show Binding Desire: Unfolding Artists Books and to share ideas and best practices for the Book Arts Minor with educators closely associated with Otis and with those new in the field and to me. Kathy Walkup, the essayist for the Otis show, was a speaker on a panel entitled, Women at the Press, Then and Now, moderated by former Communication Arts Chair, Cindy Marsh.
