Word5 Exhibit

Another one of my poems is going to be shown at the word: type + image exhibit. The typography class this year really stepped it up. As I leave work, I spy into the gallery. I haven’t seen the treatment of my poem yet, so it’s extra suspenseful. Here’s the info (pulled from the email sent out by Columbia):

Word: Type + Image

Opening Reception: January 27, 5-7pm

Reception to include readings by undergraduate and graduate poetry students whose work is featured in the exhibit!

In ‘Word: Type + Image’, nineteen poems are lifted from the convention of the white page and shaped into word pictures that crawl up gallery walls, hide in corners, wrap themselves around objects and spew out onto the gallery floor. Lines of verse no longer simply evoke images; they become images themselves.

‘Word’ is a collaboration between Columbia College creative writing poetry students in the Department of English and typography students in the Department of Art and Design. The exhibition also features artwork by students who have responded to the subjects of the poems or who use words as an artform in their own right.

Participating Faculty: Nicole Wilson, Assistant Programs Director of Poetry & Literature, Department of English. Dawn Peccatiello, Department of Art and Design.

Exhibit runs Jan 24, 2011 – Mar 11, 2011
