Mission And Vision

A respected and dedicated champion of the field, Minnesota Center for Book Arts is the largest and most comprehensive center of its kind.

We celebrate the book as a vibrant contemporary art form that takes many shapes. Our mission is clear: to lead the advancement of the book as an evolving art form.

MCBA is committed to book art, artists and appreciators. Our mission is achieved through quality programs that support a broad continuum of creators, learners and admirers. We lead the field by promoting innovation, sustaining traditions, educating new enthusiasts, inspiring creative expression and honouring artistic excellence. From the traditional crafts of papermaking, letterpress printing and bookbinding to new methods of art-making and communication, MCBA supports the limitless creative development of book arts.

Books and other “contained narratives” have existed for centuries, created through various techniques and taking numerous forms. They chronicled history, celebrated achievements and communicated collective and personal knowledge. Books as multi-faceted and interdisciplinary methods of communication remain relevant. MCBA’s mission supports an important lasting vision: a world where book art is created, cultivated, celebrated, and understood as a vital and lasting expression of culture.
