Today Waterloo Arts is hosting a panel about artist-designed small press books. It will include writer Laura Ruíz Montes, editor of Ediciones Vigia, local collaborator Damaris Puñales Alpizar of Case Western Reserve University, CAN Journal editor Michael Gill and Cleveland small press publisher RA Washington. The discussion will be in English and Spanish. The books will be on view during the panel and remain on view through 5/19. It’s free and open to all.
Liz Maugans, co-founder and executive director of Zygote Press, has created a new project titled The Artist’s Trust: A Portrait of the Artist in Cuyahoga County. It’s part of MOCA Cleveland’s summer exhibition Constant as the Sun, which will open Fri 6/2 and run through Sun 9/17. She’s calling for all interested Cuyahoga County artists 18 and over to submit a self-portrait in any medium. All that’s required is that you self-identify as an artist. The portrait must fit on an 8.5” x 11” vertical paper or board and fit into a 9” x 12” envelope.
