Bucket with gitmo

Patron holds one of the bags, buckets, and in this case boxes, that Mali Mrozinski was commissioned to create for the project since many of the altered books were a bit unwieldy to carry and deserved protection from the elements. Visible here is Sue Walker's "Gitmo," and one of the questionnaires that were distributed during the first few months the altered books were available for checkout. Questions included inquiries into the patron's reasons for checking out this particular artwork, how the work may have evolved over the time the viewer spent living with it, various basic demographic details, and questions about how often the viewer viewed and purchased original works of art.
