The Columbia River Correctional Institution (CRCI) Artist in Residence 
Program is hosting a book drive in conjunction with the Ninth Annual 
Publication Fair, to be held at the Cleaners at the Ace Hotel, 403 SW 
10th Avenue, Wednesday 12/13, 12:00-7:00 pm.

Join us to purchase a book for donation, or bring books from your own 
collection to donate.

The book drive seeks titles related to conceptual art, social practice, 
collaboration, critical theory, film, painting, sculpture, art 
technique, artist monographs, art history, performance art, curating, 
and so on, in an effort to expand the art library at CRCI. The library 
began in April 2017 as a way to expand access to art books, art writing, 
and documentation, and is one component of the Artist in Residence 
Program, which also includes workshops, lectures, critiques, and 
collaborative projects.

The CRCI Artist in Residence Program is open to prisoners at the 
Columbia River Correctional Institution, a minimum-security prison with 
the Portland city limits, run by the Oregon Department of Corrections. 
The residency is facilitated by a rotating faculty of artists and 
students from the Art and Social Practice MFA Program at Portland State
