Missoula "First Friday" Alterations
Apart of Missoula, Montana's "First Friday" Art Series, here is an untitled piece done by one of their local librarians (Who goes nameless). It is a really simple but moving piece and concept done by the artist which includes many outside materials instead of just the book itself. The artist uses a funnel with pieces of other books and large blue letters to create a "grinder" in the the bind of the book. This gives the illusion that these are the materials used to create a great read. Also the bright red of the funnel and sky blue of the letters brings the audience's attention to, what I view as, the centerpiece of the artwork. Dope!
