Unbound Upcycled Book Art Winners

The 2019 Un~Bound Upcycled Book Art contest had amazing entries that were beautiful and imaginative.. There were entries submitted at all of the eight branch locations, and the challenge to “Transform” a book into a work of art was met with creative and colorful pieces, each one unique and one-of-a-kind. The judging was provided by staff members of the Dixie State University Art Department, who judged the entries for originality, creativity, technical difficulty, and theme.
