The Nobelity Project and Wardenclyffe Gallery
“The Art of Moving Books” Exhibit
Thursday, May 9, 7 – 10 p.m.
1101 Springdale Rd.
Competition has been lively for the Bookmobile Exterior Design category, with the selected artist receiving a trip to Roatan Island to help paint the converted school bus with the artists’ custom design. We received a number of submissions from some very talented artists, but in the end, our judges elected Baylor Estes as the Bookmobile designer. Baylor is a young mural artist from Austin, Texas and will be joining the team in Roatan to beautify the bookmobile.
Competition jurors included Cameron Sinclair, founder of Architecture for Humanity, Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky), Artist in Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Austin sculptor Karen Hawkins and Katie Rose Pipkin, artist and director of Wardenclyffe Gallery.
Artists entries in The Nobelity Project’s Art of Moving Books competition will be showcased at an opening night exhibit and reception at Wardenclyffe Gallery in East Austin.
The event is free and open to the public. Complimentary beer, wine and cocktails by Dulce Vida Organic Tequila, Tito’s Vodka, Shiner Beer and Troublemaker Wine.
