Letters and Words: Another Take

. October 30, 2013.

Text is integral to communication, right? The University Gallery in the EMU Student Center is presenting the exhibition Non-Text that challenges our conventional assumptions about text as our primary means of narrative communication. The exhibit includes the work of sixteen national and international artists, who have aesthetically manipulated the recognizable qualities of letters and words into visual experiences.
