Visual Poetry (and Prose) [Nance Van Winckel]
Language can live a very different sort of life when it exists with, or in, a visual-arts realm. A few examples from such leading practitioners as Tom Phillips, Bianca Stone, and John Ashbery will be presented to jump-start your imagination in this direction. Then, augmented by your words and other graphic materials, we will make visual/verbal collage pieces out of old book pages. Bring drafts of your own writing to mine for text-art.
