This event takes place at the Copper Room at Hotel Congress (311 Congress St, Tucson AZ).

 

Join us for a conversation with Meg Jackson Fox, the Associate Curator for the Center for Creative Photography, on the current exhibit at the Center: "A Portrait of Poetry: Photographs and Video" by B.A. Van Sise.  Featuring more than 80 portraits of poets, they are done creatively, performing a concept Van Sise has created based upon one of the author’s poems.  The resulting portraits are at once a likeness of the poet, an evocation of the poem, and a presentation of a visual narrative fashioned by the photographer.  

 

Jackson Fox will give a short 20 minute talk about the exhibit and share some images.  Event will feature complimentary snacks and a cash bar; doors at 5:30, program at 6pm.
