The Poetry Center is interested in building visibility for social justice in our collections. This fall, we begin the process in the anthology section with a project that highlights female and female-identified poets on the shelf and in the catalog. This exhibit explores our discoveries during the project, highlighting issues of representation and intersectionality within anthologies. We also want to hear from you: which groupings of poets should we highlight next? Join us for this exhibit—and help us look toward the future.

Exhibitions are displayed in the Jeremy Ingalls Gallery of the Poetry Center.

The Poetry Center is honored to host the first ever solo exhibition of the work of letterpress printer, book artist, and writer Crane Giamo. Crane Giamo’s daring handmade books and collaborative projects walk a line between apocalypse and community. Blood, sweat, and tears are only the beginning—come see books made with soot, pecans, feathers, Alabama red dirt, rocket fuel, and melting ice.

A talk by Crane Giamo and open reception takes place in the Jeremy Ingalls Gallery March 7.
