Claremont Colleges Library extends exhibit
The Claremont Colleges Library invites you to visit the Arts and Voices: Asian American Artists Books exhibit, which has been extended through June 30.
The exhibit, co-curated by the Asian Library and Ella Strong Denison Library at Scripps College, showcases Asian American book artists work and their contributions to social justice, connection to their cultural heritage and more.

“To celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, this exhibit features selected Asian American book artists and their works, which are all available at the libraries of The Claremont Colleges,” a news release said. “The exhibit aims to showcase the variety of artists books by Asian American book artists, their contributions to book arts, pursuit of self- identity, social justice, and connection to their cultural heritage through their artistic expressions of book arts.”
The exhibit is on display in the Claremont College’s Asian Library, also known as Honnold 3, and is open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Claremont Colleges Library recently opened its doors to community card holders, but since this exhibit is part of the library’s Special Collections it is also open to all members of the public by appointment regardless of card status.
