Art Access has partnered with Salt Lake City Public Library to host an exhibit at the downtown library during the Utah Humanities Book Festival. Recovering the Classics aims to reconnect people to classical literature and features artist's interpretations of book covers for various Shakespearean works.
Recovering the Classics is a campaign launched in 2013 inviting illustrators, typographers, designers and other visual artists to create new covers for 100 of the greatest titles in the public domain.
Participating local artists include:
Brian Bean, Brent Croxton, Grant Fuhst, Barbara Hall, Caroleine James, Ben Morgan, Jaxton Tristan Mullineaux, Lance Peacock, Mark Robison, Mimi Rogers, Colby A. Sanders, Anthony Siciliano, Stephanie Swift and Terrel VanLeeuwen.
Exhibit runs through November 2, 2016
