Encounters: Poetry Reading

For the exhibit “Encounters: How the Light Gets In,” 20 visual artists were paired with a poet, and the two met to exchange ideas and share some work. They were invited to use the theme “how the light gets in,” from the refrain of Leonard Cohen’s song “Anthem,” and interpret it as they chose, to develop two new pieces for the show or collaborate on a single piece. Twenty unique interpretations of this theme are on exhibit from May 12 – May 26.
