The May Exhibit at Odd Fellows, “BOUND & UNBOUND" explores the Art of letter, word & book.  It opens a hands-on “conversation” about the place of books, language, arts and engagement in our modern age. 

With over 40 artists, work includes handmade artist’s books, letterpress works, alphabet series, text into other art, altered books, art made from up-cycled books, art in books, & several lively installations. Student work from Redwood School, Caspar Creek Learning Center, Ft. Bragg Middle School, Mendocino High School, and Caspar Children's Garden add to the exhibit. The Children's Book Nook provides a special place to 'crawl into' for reading, and exploring. Visitors can get hands-on with Worlds Longest Poem and the WORD of the Day or jump into the Typing Pool for a moments step back in time.
