Felicia Rice, book artist, book arts educator, sole proprietor of Moving Parts Press in Santa Cruz, CA, collaborates with visual and performing artists and writers to create book structures that combine word and image. Moving Parts Press publications have been included in exhibitions and collections nationally and internationally and have been bestowed numerous awards and grants. Recently, the UC Santa Barbara Library acquired the Moving Parts Press archive and a MPP publication, DOC/UNDOC, is included an exhibition titled, “Artists and Their Books, Books and Their Artists,” from June 26 – October 28, 2018 at the Getty Research Institute. Rice is now immersed in the exploration of “book as performance art.”
