CALL FOR ENTRIES

Poetic TYPES at case[werks]

Where can you take a poem? We can't wait to see.

SHAG, in conjunction with Case[werks] Gallery and Station North Arts & Entertainment District, is organizing an exhibition of graphic and visual works based on this poem:

Tuning In

Imagine a poem
where the stars speak to you,
give collegial advice,
as the sun does in Frank O'Hara's
"True Account of Talking to the Sun
at Fire Island."

O'Hara! Wake up!
When I talked with your
comrade, Mayakovsky,
he was already up.

You may not be
the greatest thing on earth,
but you're okay.
Don't worry about your place in history.
Just keep on.

In my poem,
the stars whistle
thinly:

It's hard for us to care
from this great distance,
but go ahead, use us
in your humanthropomorphic way
as mirrors of your twirling selves.

The words are thrilling
though attenuated;
then, they get tinny
and begin to break up.

I think I hear    burn
I think I hear    explode

--Sylvia Fischbach-Braden

SHAG: Turning Points

Wednesday, July 20th
7-9pm, MICA, 1300 W Mount Royal Ave, Baltimore, MD, RM M110

TURNING POINTS in design have changed history and individual lives. Whether game changers like the invention of moveable type or the Macintosh computer, or critical factors such as an influential teacher of a pivotal internship, change is the constant for us all. Come join fellow designers and share your personal experience or your impression of a particular turning point in design history.

You'll have 10 minutes, with visuals if you like, and additional time for Q&A. Let us know if you plan to speak when you sign in the door.

It's your night — the mic is open and the stage is set!
