About the Exhibition :: The Mills College MFA Program in Book Art and Creative Writing was launched in 2006 and is the first program in the nation to combine these two disciplines into one degree. In hindsight, it seems only natural to combine the study of a field that focuses on a vital form of creative content-making with the study of a field that focuses on the history, design, and craft of objects that contain content. But the program at Mills is so much more than the combination of two interrelated disciplines: it offers an innovative interdisciplinary space for students to expand their approach and understanding of each field through the lens of the other, allowing them to experiment with creation of new visions of what a book can be when elevated to the plane of art.
