This exhibit is a dialog beginning with a poet’s voice and then calling forth an artist’s remix, and response. You are invited to this collaborative exhibition in hopes you, too, will discover something hidden, and now made communal in the open light. A Hiding Place can be a rest stop or a generator shop, a place to recover and perhaps uncover. Poets and artists all have one, if not physically, then metaphorically. Perhaps everyone if asked could make a rendering or tell of such a place.
