Join us at the MAH for an evening of poetry, book arts, performances, discussions, workshops and demonstrations for all ages and skill levels.

The MAH and Book Arts Santa Cruz are bringing together some of Santa Cruz’s leading book arts artists for this evening extravaganza. These artists will remind you never to judge a book by its cover with workshops that transform the printed page into altered books, book art sculpture, book collage and paper folding books.

Learn the art of papermaking, marbling, paper molds, calligraphy, origami books, how to use a table top press, monoprinting, laser cutting, and book binding.

Poetry Santa Cruz has selected an array of dynamic local poets for poetry readings in our auditorium from 6pm-8pm. Listen in as the spoken word inspires you to write some of your own poems throughout the museum. Add your own poem, word, or line to our stairway of chalk poems, poetry map of Santa Cruz, artwork and exhibitions. And don’t be surprised if a slam poet pops up in an unexpected place.

In partnership with Book Arts Santa Cruz and Poetry Santa Cruz.
