Pre-Conference Tuesday-Night Event: Brian Dettmer’s “Hardcovers and Paperbacks” at the University Museum

Those who are arriving in Oxford on Tuesday, March 31, for the Oxford Conference for the Book: the University of Mississippi Museum is hosting an opening reception that evening for Brian Dettmer’s upcoming exhibition Hardcovers and Paperbacks, a collection of works that both memorializes the written word and reincarnates it. With great reverence, Dettmer has transformed books into sculptural works, providing them with a new voice that pays homage to their former lives.

The exhibition will be on view at both the University Museum and Rowan Oak. The opening reception takes place Tuesday night from 5:30 to 7:00 at the University Museum, on the corner of University Ave. and 5th St.
