Word | Image

An exhibit exemplifying collaborations between poets and photographers.

A poem creates different mental images for each reader. The inverse can be said for photography, an image is shown, and a different narrative is created by every viewer. In their upcoming exhibit, Word|Image, the West Michigan Photography Collective intends to experiment with these dualities by collaborating with local writers to create photographic images inspired by poetry.

The show is entitled Image|Word and will be taking place June 7-9 in the Mlive Hub located at 169 Monroe Ave NW. The event aligns with Grand Rapids’ Festival of the Arts and will have an opening Reception on Friday, June 7th. The reception will take place between the hours of 6-9. Mlive hub hours are 9am to 5pm all three days.
