44 confirmed artists for 2009 Art Invitational

We now have what could be the final list of 42 contributing artists for the 2009 Poetry Scores Art Invitational, which will be held Friday, Nov. 13 at The Luminary.

This year's Invitational is dedicated to The Sydney Highrise Variations by the Australian poet Les Murray. Each artist will be making work in response to the poem and titling their work after a verbatim piece of language from the poem. I have included titles when I know them.

Gina Alvarez
Jenna Bauer
Michael Behle
Kevin Belford
Keith Buchholz
Heather Corley: "The starving spirit is fed upon the heart"
Jon Cournoyer
Greg Edmondson: “Sick beloved engine”
Nancy Exarhu
Thom Fletcher: "The city kept her flavour fire-ladder high," "To limit them to standing on economic grounds. With their twists of sculpture," "The worldwide breath of Catching Up may serve to keep the mighty, slowing machine aloft beyond our time"
Christopher Gustave
Sue Hartman
Michael Hoffman
Alexa Hoyer
Chris King: “Dante,” “Cromwell”

is fitted up with hospitals and electric Gatling guns
to deal with recalcitrant and archaic spirits."

Robin Street-Morris - "To be solar, I must be nuclear--"
