The Papermaker’s Garden features a variety of plants grown to be used as papermaking fiber and art material in the Center for Book & Paper studios. This garden supports deep hands on engagement with the process of fiber production as well contemporary ideas in interdisciplinary practice related to art, science, the environment and social practice.
Founded and programmed by students, faculty, and staff in the Graduate Program in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts, the Papermaker's Garden is also a space for collaborative, cross-disciplinary educational opportunities and site-specific art projects.
Located in the heart of the Columbia College Chicago South Loop campus, two blocks from the Center for Book and Paper Arts, the Papermaker's Garden contributes to Columbia College Chicago’s sustainability initiatives, academic curriculum and engagement with the South Loop neighborhood.
The Papermaker’s Garden is in phase 2 of design and construction. We expect to be fully operational by fall 2013. Contact April Sheridan for more information: asheridan (at) colum (dot) edu.
