We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of this year’s edition of Plug In ICA’s Prairie Art Book Fair. This will be the fourth iteration of the bi-annual event. Over seventeen vendors will gather for three days in our galleries to share an array of printed matter and other publication ephemera. The vendors include independent artists, art collectives, artist-run organizations and publishers from across the prairies and beyond.
