The Cumming Library hosted the River of Words exhibit in April, featuring art and poetic works from students all across Georgia. The art installation was a big hit with our patrons who truly enjoyed seeing a project that celebrated our community and the arts.
Patrons were able to create their own poetic works at our “Blackout Poetry Station” by taking a recycled book page and blacking out words until a poem emerged from the remaining words. We had quite a few participants and they created very beautiful poems. Patrons also signed our guest book and left short comments such as: “Awesome!”, “Terrific idea: Art in the Community.”, and “Beautiful – So Much Talent!”
