Harnessing the ancient power of scroll storytelling, some of the world’s finest creators gather to show off their work on large and small rolls of parchment. Created in 2008 by artist Will Varner, Scroll Bowl was a unique way for artists and illustrators to present their work large scale and interactively. In 2009 Will Varner left the Scroll Bowl project to pursue a professional illustration career and artist/curator John Jennison took over the project. After accepting Jennison as one of the premier issue contributors,The 22 Magazine partnered with him to present Scroll Bowl as both a performance and installation event. Drawing from an array of traditions, commentary and communication, Scroll Bowl V presents a modern look at the scroll as both an object and as a tool.
