The Road To Printers Ball Is Paved With Good Receptions

The Printers Ball is a little more than a month away, and the literary community in Chicago is gearing up for the annual celebration of all things print. Spudnik Press Cooperative leads the way with an opening reception for its newest exhibition, In Clipping Signal, on May 17, from 6pm-9pm, at 1821 W. Hubbard St.

Curated by Luke Daly of Spudnik Press Cooperative and April Sheridan of Columbia College's Center for Book and Paper Arts, In Clipping Signal features new and selected works by poets who are pulling double duty: writing poetry as well as making visual collage. Guests will be treated to "visual works as well as a publication consisting of images and writings exploring the intersections of poetry and visual art" by local and national artists, such as Brandon Downing, Krista Franklin, David-Baptiste Chirot, and Rosmarie Waldrop.

The reception and exhibition, which are free and open to the public, are made possible by Poetry magazine. If you leave the event especially inspired, you can always sign up for one of Spudnik's upcoming classes.
