DC Art Book Fair

Join us for the third annual DC Art Book Fair!

This curated, kid-friendly event in NMWA’s Great Hall brings together small presses, artists, and more to sell their independently published (largely paper-based) works. More than forty artists will be selling creations from zines to books, from comics to prints, and plenty in between.

This event is organized by the DC Art Book Collective, and the participants are chosen by a panel of judges: Nguyên Khôi Nguyễn, an artist and educator based in Baltimore; Christopher Kardambikis, assistant professor in printmaking at George Mason University; Malaka Gharib, an artist and writer based in Washington; Alison Michael Baitz, a graduate student in library science and children’s literature at Simmons University; LA Johnson, artist, illustrator and creative director at NPR; and Elizabeth Graeber, an illustrator based in Washington.


Not required. Part of July’s Free Community Day, admission to the fair is free, as well as NMWA’s collection and exhibition galleries.
