    Spotlight: Troubadour, Vagabond, Visionary: The Journeys of Vachel Lindsay

    This exhibition in the First Floor Gallery celebrates the now-forgotten poet Vachel Lindsay, the influential American poet and artist of the early twentieth century. Known for his tramping excursions of hundreds of miles across many states, when he traded poetry pamphlets and performances for food and lodging, Lindsay created an unusual visionary poetics of mystical beauty. Drawing on Christian theology, mythology, and visual symbol systems, he mapped an American spiritual landscape in poems, books, artworks, and performances. Drawn from his massive archive here at the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, this exhibition barely scratches the surface of his fascinating life and work.
