Nouns; Verb; Adverb-ly with Nancy Kangas
Inauguration ceremony on 12th April 2019 at 2.30pm
Collaboration with the OSU Design School and Jeff Haase
In this highly interactive residency; Columbus native; Nancy Kangas comes to Grandview. She aims to engage RLS students in the rambunctious process of writing — from the often difficult beginnings of trying to pick apart a knot of something intriguing or troubling; through the white-water-rafting thrill of rough draft writing; to the intense play of revision; in which we fatten up; trim down; and turn our work inside out until it rings true. Because she believes exposure to excellent writing gives us inspiration and direction; she shares a wide range of writing; created by young as well as experienced artists. She wants us all to feel the impact of a metaphor and the necessity of strong imagery.
Nancy has always wanted to try and make a sculpture out of her poems. Collaborating with Jeff Haase; from the OSU design school we are making her wish a reality. Using the 5columns; words the children have selected will be projected using sunlight. This will create a giant; interactive poetry sundial.
