SooLocal (A Division of Soo Visual Arts Center-3506 Nicollet Avenue):
Soo Visual Arts Center in collaboration with Mystery Spot Books Presents
Visual Literacy at SooLocal on December 13th from Noon- 5pm.

Join Soo Visual Arts Center and Mystery Spot Books for Visual Literacy, a one-day sale of artist publications from collectives and artists around the Twin Cites.

AA Bronson, artist and former director of the New York based artist book institution Printed Matter has said that once a technology becomes obsolete, it enters the world of art. So it is with the printed page. The number of visual artists using the book format for the creation and proliferation of work has exploded in the last 15 years even as the end of print media is supposed to be upon us.

Come to the SooLocal Artists Holiday Shop on December 13th from Noon to 5pm and peruse a selection of locally made artist publications featuring titles by over a dozen individual artists and publishers working in photography, collage, drawing, conceptual practice and more! Participating artists include Peter Happel Christian, Jess Hirsch, Sam Hoolihan, Alexa Horochowski, Location Books, Paula McCartney, Mystery Spot Books, Erika Ritzel and Lex Thompson.
