Emmons named cover artist for special issue of ‘Spoon River Poetry Review’
Carol Emmons, professor of Art and Design, has been selected as the cover artist for the 40th anniversary issue of the Spoon River Poetry Review. The Review publishes contemporary poetry from around the world, along with interviews and reviews. A detail of her installation “Surveying Desire XIII: Observatory” will be featured. Emmons also presented recently at the College Art Association Annual Conference in New York as part of the “Truth Telling and Parafiction: Practice and Theory” panel. Her paper, “The Museum as Para-Site,” considers artists’ installations (including her “Alembic I”) that unmask and manipulate the museum’s authority and authenticity.
