'Selections From the Permanent Collection: Big Books' Exhibit
"Selections from the Permanent Collection" is a new exhibition series highlighting holdings from the Poetry Center's L.R. Benes Rare Book Room, including contemporary fine press work and artist books as well as important works from the 20th century and earlier. This winter, the center inaugurates "Selections from the Permanent Collection" with a look at oversized works by Emily McVarish, Robert Creeley and Alex Katz, among others. Infrequently displayed because of their size, these "Big Books" are stunning.
