Poetry Reading, Opening Lecture and Reception

On Wednesday, September 16 at 6pm in the CFAC Recital Hall the Center Art Gallery is pleased to present a poetry reading and opening lecture in conjunction with the new exhibition “Light: An Eternal Presence – The Donna Spaan Contemporary Collection of Art.”

Lew Klaat (English) will be reading the newly commissioned poem “Say What You See in the Dark,” and Craig Hanson (Art & Art History) will be giving the opening lecture “Collecting Light: Historical Context for the Donna Spaan Collection.” Join us as we celebrate the opening of this new exhibition and newly acquired art collection at Calvin College. Desserts
and Refreshments to follow in the West Lobby.

The art exhibition will be on display through October 10. Initiated in 2013 through a generous gift by Donna Spaan, this new contemporary collection of art is being exhibited for the first time. Designed as an educational tool the collection presents light as both a universal force, and as a revealer of particular: light that imprints darkness, references history, celebrates music and poetry, illuminates texts.  Included are
works by artists: Gerhard Richter, Hendrik Kerstens, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Sandra Bowden, Arne Svenson, Carol Bomer, Doug and Mike Starn, and Thierry Cohen.
