In Memory D Thompson
Curated by Buck Downs

Opening Reception: December 16th, 7-9pm
A series of visual poems created by rubbing words from the names and related inscriptions found on headstones in historic Congressional Cemetery, Washington DC. Equal parts ghost story and concrete poem, each sequence teases out a mysterious syntax buried in the names of the dead. Buck Downs is a poet and book artist, publisher of Buck Downs Books.
