About this Exhibition

Ex Libris ExChange is an international collaborative art project sponsored by the Boston/Strasbourg Sister City Association (BSSCA). The project includes 26 artists – 13 from each city who have created original Artists' Books and artful maps based on a common theme. The thematic content of the artwork was inspired by an elaborately illustrated 18th century journal created by Georg Daniel Flor, a member of a French brigade that participated in the American Revolutionary War. Our artists have produced highly imaginative works using 21st century techniques to engage with the voice and aesthetic of an ordinary soldier with an extraordinary talent. This exhibit presents aesthetics and techniques that span centuries - one might say "from Gutenberg to Rauschenberg."
