The 3D Art Book is a celebration of retro, anaglyphic 3D imagery, which was popularized in the U.S. during the 1950s. Works by 100 established and up-and-coming contemporary artists, specializing in street art, graffiti, Pop Surrealism, and graphic design, are expertly rendered as stereoscopic images. Most of these artists have never shown work in 3D before. This book displays their pieces in a new light and bring 3D back to the old school. Author/artist Tristan Eaton, pop culture critic Carlo McCormick, and some of the artists whose work appear in the book discuss this publication, and share a selection of images which guests can view with provided 3D glasses.

In its second season the program series An Art Book, initiated and organized by Arezoo Moseni, is a celebration of the essential importance and beauty of art books. The events showcase book presentations and discussions by world renowned and emerging artists, critics, curators, historians and writers.
