Concept to Action: Pop-Up Artists’ Books
A lecture by Shawn Sheehy
Thursday, March 15 • 7pm
Pacific Lutheran UniversityUniversity Center Regency Room

How does one make something as magical as a pop-up book? Where do the ideas and the skills come from? Shawn Sheehy talks about the influences and experiences in his life that have enabled him to concept and engineer pop-up books.

Shawn Sheehy combines paper engineering with an interest in biological and cultural evolution to produce sculptural pop-up books. Shawn has taught workshops at PBI, Penland, the Centers for Book Arts in Chicago and New York, and many other venues across the U.S. His commercial pop-up clients include the American Girl Company, American Greetings and PeeWee Herman.

This event is sponsored by Pacific Lutheran University and Puget Sound Book Artists.
