"Spring" It On 

I was happy to read Roberta Fallon's article in today's Philadelphia Weekly on the ICA exhibit "Springtide" and the poetry written for the show.

Fallon writes:

"I've been wishing for art to take back its place in people's hearts after years of self-imposed exile in the chill lands of abstraction, conceptualism and minimalism. But there's already an art form that's participatory and speaks to people--and never went away."

That is, poetry.

She closes the article with these words:

"Perhaps poetry will lead people back to art. It certainly can help, as it does with this exhibit. The "Springtide" poets will read at the ICA tonight at 7 p.m."
