Professor of Art Cindy Marsh's artist book, “Book of Genesis Tent Show for Birds and Other Small Creatures,” is included in the “Pop-up and Moveable Book Show,” a traveling show currently on display at the Pop-up and Moveable Book Society in San Diego. The book, which won for "Best Use of Typography," was set with wood type from the Rare Type Collection and printed on fabric at the Goldsmith Press (department of art/APSU). Its fabric was waxed and sewn into a miniature collapsible tent. The Pop-Up and Moveable Book Show will tour the country through 2005. Marsh also has a piece in the sixth annual Renaissance Regional Art Exhibit, a juried exhibition at The Renaissance Center, Dickson. The show opened Sept. 23 and will continue through Nov. 13.
