Altars and Elegies

09/09/2013 - 12/04/2013

This fall, you can help the Poetry Center to celebrate one of our region’s most beautiful traditions, Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Our Altars and Elegies exhibit begins on September 9, with a display of books and broadsides celebrating the elegy, a poetic form that serves as a lament for the dead. Artists Noah Saterstrom and Writer Rebecca Brown were asked to lay the foundation for a community altar in the Jeremy Ingalls Gallery. Throughout the months of October and November, everyone is invited to add your remembrances of departed poets, writers, and loved ones to the display. Please join us in paying homage to those who have gone before.
