In celebration of poetry month, drop by the Thom Panel on the main floor and check out the giant exclamation mark. It is a ‘broadside’ featuring the poem “Boys Bathing”, by Irving Layton, along with many book covers from the Special Poetry collection of the Archives and Research Collection.

 “Deep Thermal” located on the (opposite) Gallery wall, is from the Modern poetry collection. The viewers create their own connection between the image and word. This is a limited edition ekphrastic portfolio of six numbered pigment prints, signed by  Mary Heebner, with poetic responses to the images by Clayton Eshleman.

The displays run until April 30th and were curated by Lloyd K. Keane, PhD, Monica Ferguson and Al MacLennan.
