Calligraffiti : Words from the Street

Calligraffiti : Words from the Street

Presented by Ogden Contemporary Arts at PLATFORMS

O1ARTS is pleased to present a unique multi-disciplinary arts experience, CALLIGRAFFITI, to be mounted at PLATFORMS, for July and August:

The Calligraffiti project attempts to leverage the written word through writing that has been aesthetically altered – potentially (presumably) adding layers beyond the words’ literal meaning.

We have provided poetry written by Ogden poets, about life in Ogden, to street artists Josh Pohlman and Jeremy Little, who will transcribe excerpts in their own “hand” or letterstyle(s) onto large panels for display at our PLATFORMS art site.

The chosen poets’ works will also be compiled in a book about/of Ogden poetry to be published this fall. We will facilitate discussions between three community segments: area residents, poets, and visual artists on multiple occasions.

This event is made possible through a grant from Utah Humanities and generous support from the following organizations: Weber County RAMP, Ogden City, mackenzieEXHIBT and Uprok
