Heights Arts presents Ekphrastacy: Artists Talk + Poets Respond

Cleveland Heights, OH - On Thursday, April 2 at 7:00 p.m., the community is invited to join an evening of conversation with Daniel Levin, associate professor of photographer at Cuyahoga Community College and guest curator of Impermanence, on view at Heights Arts through April 18.  Showcasing the works of 11 Cleveland photographers, Impermanence celebrates Cleveland’s changing urban landscape—from Tremont to the Heights inner ring suburbs—through pairs of photographs showing the same view of a site at different historical times.  Levin and exhibition photographers will discuss “rephotographic survey,” the concept and process behind Impermanence, as well as the stories behind the creation of their images.

In an interesting twist to the standard curator’s talk, Heights Arts also invites regional poets to respond to the works on view as part of the evening. Hear from Cleveland Heights’ incoming Poet Laureate Meredith Holmes, plus poets Bunny Breslin, Diane Kendig, Robert McDonough, Jill Sell and Catherine Wing, who will read original poems created in response to these photographs of our city. A reception is held prior to the talk; all are encouraged to come early and enjoy refreshments while viewing the exhibition.
