>>>>>>>>>>>>>>DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 26, 2024!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Hive Center for the Book Arts and Evanston Public Library are pleased to join Starshaped Press in their FREE THE BOOKS campaign by presenting FREE THE BOOKS: A Print Exhibition in March 2024 at the Evanston Public Library's main branch at 1703 Orrington in Evanston IL.

To participate in FREE THE BOOKS: A Print Exhibition, please fill out the form below, and send your banned book print(s) to Evanston Public Library, c/o Heather Ross and Jamie Thome; 1703 Orrington, Evanston IL 60201 to be received by FEBRUARY 26, 2024 (DEADLIINE EXTENDED FROM 2/16!). If you're local to Chicagoland, and wish to drop your work directly at the library, please bring it to the second floor Reader's Services desk by the deadline. Sliding scale entry fee of $5-$35 to help Hive with costs related to the exhibition can be submitted via Venmo (@Hive-CenterfortheBookArts) or Paypal (info@hivebookarts) or with a check.

FREE THE BOOKS: A Print Exhibition will run from March 1-31, 2024, and EPL+Hive will present related programming during the month of March (TBD). We hope that FREE THE BOOKS: A Print Exhibition will morph into a traveling exhibition, to make its way all across the country. Printers can choose if they'd like to participate in that traveling portion by indicating on the form below. If you opt OUT of traveling exhibition, you will be responsible for return shipping or pick up of your print.

Printers may also offer prints from the exhibition for sale, and 100% of proceeds from your sales of prints will be yours to keep. We recommend that you direct all print sales to your website or social media, as neither EPL nor Hive will handle sales of work from the exhibition.

There is no limitation to how many different prints you send to exhibit, and size is limited to 4 feet either direction. Work can be framed or unframed. Unframed work will be exhibited by special clips that will not damage the work while its at EPL. EPL, Hive, nor Starshaped Press cannot guarantee other damage might happen, nor will we be held liable for other damage if it occurs, as the space is indeed for the public.

While we absolutely support your right to utilize curse words of all kinds in your work, we respectfully ask that you be mindful of the audience of all ages that will view FREE THE BOOKS: A Print Exhibition when you select what you'd like to exhibit, and note that specially placed ornaments (asterisks and the like) can be well placed, if that's your jam.
