Current Projects

The Correspondence Project--a national collaborative project that unites the work of visual artists with the work of poets in a lithographic print. Two beautifully designed traveling boxes have been made from walnut trees harvested in Iowa: one for the visual artist and one for the poet. The visual artist’s box carries a 9”x 3”x12” block of limestone, along with the tools necessary to draw on the stone. The poet’s box carries several sheets of light mylar, nibs and ink. The boxes are shipped to the studios of the visual artist and poet. Each is asked to create an original work of art on the material included in the box and to ship it back to Iowa where the work of the poet and the visual artist are combined in a limited edition lithogrpah, eliciting striking associations both conceptually and socially. 

Current roster of artists and poets: Katia Santibañez, Nate Klug, Kathranne Knight, Michael O’Brien, Joshua Marsh, and Kate Greenstreet.
