The Letter, the Word & the Book
Nov 18, 2011 through May 13, 2012
Set on our mezzanine level, The Letter, the Word & the Book is a small exhibition that complements Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible by highlighting other 20th- and 21st-century practitioners of a centuries-old craft. Using calligraphy, engravings, enameling and more, the artists featured put a contemporary twist on documents ranging from handbills to Bibles.
