Merging Visions

Merging Visions: a Collaborative Exhibit of Art and Poetry

What began as a casual conversation between two members of the Denton Poets’ Assembly (DPA), one of whom was also a member of the Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) Board, grew into the collaborative exhibit that became known as Merging Visions. Recognizing that strong visual imagery can occur when reading many poems, they discussed the possibility of pairing poetry with art, and displaying the two in an exhibition for the community. After hearing the idea, both VAST and DPA Boards promptly agreed there would be an interest in such an exhibit and each should proceed in presenting it to their respective memberships.
