THE ARTIST WHO LEFT NEW YORK: RELATED EVENTS
SPECIAL LECTURE AT 4PM
Throughout his life Dale Henry was an avid poetry lover and considered Robert Creely, T.S. Eliot, Francis Ponge, and Gertrude Stein among his favorite writers. Henry’s love of words influenced his conceptual approach to art production and was directly manifest in his work as in his Prosody Drawings from 1973. In honor of Dale Henry’s appreciation for the written word, poets Stephen Motika, Tonya Foster, Camilo Roldan, and Gracie Leavitt will read their work surrounded by the Dale Henry exhibition.
