Sometimes the light comes in tiny points,
shark-toothed and smaller than stars;
sometimes, it sprays over everything.
– from Nancy K. Pearson‘s To the High School Prom Queen
The above is from one of the many poems, prose excerpts, and dance clips recently added to our Gallery@MCC. You see, every time we award new Artist Fellows and Finalists, we feed a sampling of their art into the adorable, irascible Artist Fellowships robot. Several futuristic sound effects later, you have an updated Gallery@MCC: a historical record, if you will, of the excellence of Massachusetts artists.
Among the other recent additions:
- In Fiction/Creative Nonfiction, Preston Gralla‘s olfactory entrepreneur has a can’t-lose scheme and Jung H. Yun‘s teenaged, Vietnamese protagonist tracks her unwanted suitors by the American states they come from
- In Poetry, Anna Ross juxtaposes the personal against the scale of civilizations and Leslie Williams writes stirring poems that recently won her the Bellday Books Prize & Poetry Society of America Robert H. Winner Memorial Award!
- And, in Choreography, watch this clip from Sarah Slifer‘s my own personal (#2), with its idiosyncratic references to rec center sports:
