One nice thing about the Block Plan is that it makes field trips easy—students can take a whole day or more for trips and not worry about missing any other classes. Our book class went to Denver for a day, to visit Special Collections at the Penrose Library at the University of Denver, and the Abecedarian Gallery, which is in the Santa Fe Arts District in Denver. Abecedarian is one of the few galleries in the country that regularly shows artists’ books. It’s nice to have it so close & so accessible.
Here are some photos of the class looking at the massive pile of treasures at Penrose:
And the last image shows us inside of Abecedarian, and its proprietor, Alicia Bailey, addressing the class. Thanks Alicia!
