Exhibitions

Altars and Elegies
September 9 – December 4

This fall, you can help the Poetry Center to celebrate one of our region’s most beautiful traditions, Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Our Altars and Elegies exhibit begins on September 9, with a display of books and broadsides celebrating the elegy, a poetic form that serves as a lament for the dead. In October, local artists will lay the foundation for a community altar in the Jeremy Ingalls Gallery.

Selections from the Permanent Collection: Small Books
December 9 – January 29

In this exhibit, we showcase works from the Poetry Center’s L.R. Benes Rare Book Room that explore intersections between the condensed form of poetry and the highly portable, sometimes whimsical form of the small book.
