The Art of the Book. Turning old books into works of art, the creations of Jackson College art students will be on display in the Potter Center Art Gallery through May 5 in a presentation entitled “The Art of the Book.”Students in Professor Tom McMillen-Oakley’s Art 201, Three-Dimensional Design class re-purposed old books from the William Atkinson Library into works of art. Students have worked on similar projects, but have never been tapped by the library before. Books were given a second life by the students. There is a huge trend in the arts and crafts movement to repurpose items, from wooden shipping pallets to glass bottles and more. The trend is called “upcycling.” The Myers Family Art Gallery is located on the second floor in the lobby outside the Harold Sheffer Music Hall. It is open today during Potter Center regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and also during special events.
