January 19 - February 18, 2000, Rare Book Room, Willis Library

In 1999, the University of North Texas Friends of the Libraries sponsored an artists book competition for students. The award winner received a purchase award, and her work was added to the Rare Book Collection. 

The exhibit opened with a reception and awards presentation in the Rare Book Room, Willis Library, on January 19, 2000. The event was clearly a success. Over one hundred people attended.  Thanks to the UNT School of Visual Arts, especially Rick Allen,  for helping to organize the competition and support the exhibition.
