Close up of a cloisonné enamel piece.

Vibrant and evocative cloisonné enamel pieces, set in poetry-book-sized wooden panels, have been shelved in the Poetry Center’s stacks, waiting to be discovered by visitors. This interactive installation by artist Mary Lucking offers a non-verbal counterpoint to the experience of reading, celebrating chance encounters and opening space for the mind to re-center itself between one poetry book and the next. Poems in Silver and Glass welcomes readers back into the Poetry Center library, adding visual and tactile delight to the experience of browsing.

This exhibit can be found in the main stacks in the Poetry Center's public reading room.
