Altered Book Workshops, Contest & Display

An altered book is a form of mixed media artwork that changes a book from its original form into a different form, altering its appearance and/or meaning. Altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page, or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture.

Annie is a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.
