The book: a bound collection of printed text; a centuries-old means of visually communicating stories and ideas; and a refuge on those all-too-frequent Saturday nights when hopping around to different bars watching the same people shake their humps, their humps, their lovely lady lumps just makes you want to go to the library and, well, check it out.
For the sake of your social life okay, my social life the Museum of Outdoor Arts offers a new exhibition, ArchiTEXTure: Reinventing the Book. As a society, weve always valued books, but in the computer age, they almost feel like an antiquity without really being one, says MOA president Cynthia Madden Leitner. The artists in this exhibit are imagining new ways of relating to text.
ArchiTEXTure opens tonight and runs through August 18 in the MOAs indoor gallery, 1000 Englewood Parkway in Englewood. For more information, call the MOA at 303-806-0444 or visit www.moaonline.org.
