Coloring Pages: Works from the Corcoran Collection of Artists' Books

The George Washington University - Mon, 02/01/2016 - 10:41
February 1, 2016

With winter now making its appearance, we look for other sources of warmth in these sometimes-dreary months. Artists’ books from the Art & Design Collection from the Corcoran showcase color and color imagery in the pages of their work. Some stories are told completely through color; others, though they might use muted palettes, create a sensation with words that paint images of colorful scenes. These bright pages serve as a complement to the exhibition Color Bloc: Paintings by Elizabeth Osborne, on view in the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery through February 26, 2016.

The exhibit displays only a sampling of artists’ books from the Art & Design Collection from the Corcoran. These and many others can be viewed in the Special Collections Research Center at on the 7th foor of Gelman Library. 

Coloring Pages runs through March 25, 2016, in the 2nd floor display cases of the School of Media and Public Affairs during regular building hours
