In Focus: Poetry

Poetry & Art in Projection
Fall 2020

The Artist in Residence (AIR) program at the University of Missouri celebrated the addition of literary arts with the launch of its “In Focus: Poetry” project. For six evenings in September, AIR projected art and text images on to the sides of three MU facilities, Jesse Hall, the Agriculture Building and the Sinquefield Music Center.

The project celebrated #MizzouMade by showcasing the work of graduates. The projected images rotated each evening, featuring poetry from the works of Department of English graduates Katy DiddenJennifer Maritza McCauleyMarc McKeeRebecca Pelky and Kathryn Nuernberger. The graphic design visuals were created by School of Visual Studies graduate Cynthia Perez.
