21 Etchings and Poems was a landmark publication that had a profound impact on contemporary art and culture. Curated by College of Visual and Performing Arts, Museum Studies graduate student Courtney Spencer Eppel, this exhibition presents twenty-one paired artists and authors to create unique works of art. The partnerships for this project included well-known artists and poets Peter Grippe and Dylan Thomas, Willem de Kooning and Harold Rosenberg, Letterio Calapai and William Carlos Williams, and Franz Kine and Frank O’Hara, among others. Many of the artist represented in this portfolio are also represented in the main gallery special exhibition About Prints: The Legacy of Stanley William Hayter and Atelier 17.
