Dec 16 - Jan 22: In Memory D Thompson by Buck Downs
Opening Reception December 16 th 7-9pm, DC Arts Center, 2438 18th St., N.W., Washington DC.

A series of visual poems created by rubbing words from the names and related inscriptions found on headstones in historic Congressional Cemetery, Washington DC. Equal parts ghost story and concrete poem, each sequence teases out a mysterious syntax buried in the names of the dead. Buck Downs is a poet and book artist, publisher of Buck Downs Books.

This exhibition will also be available in book form, and in fact is available now; (a sample appears above) $15.00, drop him a line if you're interested. A portion of book sales goes to DCAC
