Abstract:
In 2015, the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida established the Marjorie S Coffey Residency for Book Arts. This residency offers a semester-long opportunity for a selected artist to draw inspiration from the collections of Special and Area Studies to create an editioned artists' book, with technical and production assistance of the Libraries' on-staff Associate in Book Arts. During the residency the artist interacts formally and informally with librarians, curators, faculty and students. This poster will detail the policies and procedures we've developed for the administration of the residency program, selection process for resident artists, timelines, and challenges. Illustrations of source materials from the Libraries' collections and the resulting artists' books will highlight the nature of the creative process, and the resident artists' highly individual and inventive responses to visual and textual research.
