Thoreau wrote, “The art of life, of a poet’s life, is, not having anything to do, to do something.” This might mean at times turning the line away from letters and toward images, as each of the poets represented in "On the Other Hand" have done. These seven artists – through drawings, sketches, scores, doodles, cartoons, contours, calligrams and other mark-making – give shape to visions and concerns in ways that show the brilliance of the creative spirit finding its forms.

This is a physical exhibit that will be displayed in the Jeremy Ingalls Gallery at the Poetry Center.
