Join us on Tuesday, February 27 at Colby College!

5:00pm, Public Reception, Colby College Museum of Art, Williams D. Adams Gallery

6:00pm, Poetry Reading, Bixler Art Building, Given Auditorium 

The Colby College Museum of Art's Lunder Institute of American Art welcomes Richard Blanco, artist-in-residence and presidential inaugural poet. Blanco will read and discuss selections of his work centered on the meaning of home, including poems from his latest book, Boundaries, a collaboration with landscape photographer Jacob Bond Hessler. The poems and photographs investigate the boundaries of race, gender, class, and ethnicity and challenge the dividing lines - both historic and current - that shadow America.
