Books As Art Exhibition

Artists and crafters are invited to upcycle used, unsalable books into art. And you can come and see it, buy it and vote for your favourites at the Regent 24 Hour Book Sale.

Books As Art entries are encouraged from artists as well as crafters, school students and community groups. Books As Art is a great opportunity to reuse books in a creative way, ensuring they have a new life.

Entries will be judged by a panel headed by Dunedin Public Art Gallery Director Cam McCracken who will lead a panel which will include artist, Nicola Jackson.

Those who want to turn their hand to making old books into art can pick up free pre-loved books from the Otago Polytechnic Hub on the corner of Forth and Union Streets, in the Link outside the University of Otago's Central Library entrance, The Antheneum, First Church, and on Sunday mornings from the Roslyn Mill.
