Thanks to Wave Books, for our first publisher donations for the De-Canon library!!Read More
June 1, 2017 @ UNA Gallery --- We were so pleased to debut a mini-preview of our De-Canon project as part of First Thursday's Art Walk.
We had three poets in conversation in exhibit-format in the upstairs part of the gallery: Stephanie Adams-Santos, Christopher Rose, and Trevino Brings Plenty displayed poems as text slides, audio readings, and video projection. Downstairs, we had one set of shelves displaying a small selection of quintessential texts by writers of color, contemporary works, and by writers no longer living.
This was just a sampling of the "pop-up library" installation that will be on exhibit at UNA for the month of August - and which will include a larger number of books and shelves, and more "exhibits" of poetry by local artists and writers.
We are beginning to gather books for the popup library installation project. The first two books in the De-Canon collection are courtesy of Stephanie Adams-Santos: her most recent poetry collection Swarm Queen's Crown, and one earlier collection, Total Memory. Thank you, Steph, for these gifts to the library!
Our "popup library" will debut in August 2017 at UNA Gallery. A preview event and reading will take place, also at UNA, on June 1st.Read More
