Double Vision: Collaborative Observations in Drawings and Poems

Thu, February 22, 2024 - Fri, March 8, 2024 • Bridge Over Weitz Commons gallery space

Observation is at the heart of arts practice courses: looking closely, interpreting, and recording what we see in material form. During Winter term ’24, students in Eleanor Jensen’s Observational Drawing (ARTS 110) and students in Susan Jaret McKinstry’s Introduction to Creative Writing (ENGL 160), plus four guest writers, did an experimental collaborative project exploring how to see an object twice using technical skills and interpretive vision in two art forms. Each artist drew a personal object in pencil or pen, then met with a writer to examine the drawing and discuss the object’s aesthetics and significance. The writer then created a poem sparked by the drawing and the conversation. The exhibit presents their objects in two media, their double vision of the art of close observation in images, lines, words and forms.
