Cover Envy! Artist Talk with Octavia Mingerink
Be our guest!
We Are LIT is excited to host Octavia Mingerink, the Grand Rapids-based multidisciplinary artist behind Pretty in Ink Press, for an artist talk on Saturday, October 1 at The Arts Marketplace at Studio Park! The event begins at 3:30.
Octavia Ink is a local illustrator, printmaker, muralist and graphic designer. She uses her artwork as a fundraiser for marginalized groups around the city, but also to push positive affirmations and liberation. Octavia has illustrated work for Penguin Random House, Baker Publishing Group, Simon & Schuster and more, including local businesses and foundations.
We Are LIT’s bookshop owner Kendra will be in conversation with Octavia about her work in the book publishing industry as an illustrator, favorite book covers she's designed, and her passion for art and community.
“Never judge a book by its cover.” But, most book lovers do! This artist talk is free to attend and will coincide with the release of We Are LIT’s newest addition to its curated book collections, Cover Envy, a vibrant collection of work across all genres that celebrates the book cover art that catches a readers eye and their heart!
Light refreshments will be available while they last. We encourage attendees to stick around and checkout The Arts Marketplace at Studio Park!
