Coordinated by Dr. Leah Michelle Kraft
Department of Communication and Fine Arts

In late September 2006, Dr. Michelle Kraft at Lubbock Christian University, was the first to receive the book for her Art 4308: Art Theory and Criticism course. She wrote, "My plan is to have students create their own pages for the book for their final exam project, which will actually occur after the book is gone. They will display their pages in an exhibition, and I will give students an opportunity to include their pages in the project."
