The Cabin is bringing local literature to East Boise.
We’ve partnered with the City of Boise to invite one local writer a month to activate, engage, and interact with Vox Poplar, a piece of public art created by Janet Zweig for the Library! at Bown Crossing. Vox Poplar consists of a large, sculptural, scroll of paper with a bas-relief image of Cottonwood trees carved into the face. The scroll of paper feeds into a manual typewriter mounted to a pedestal.
A glass top vitrine will accompany the sculpture and provide a viewing space for written works generated from the project.
About Dig: On a cold and rainy day in Burlington Ontario, amongst the machinery and whistles of the steel factories, the cry of a newborn baby was heard. That baby grew up across Canada and the US and is a painter, playwright, and Co-founder of the Death Rattle Writers Festival; they are a judge at the Scholastics Art and Writing Awards, and an Alexa Rose Grant Recipient.
On their approach to Vox Poplar:
I plan to use my time with the Vox Poplar program to write experimental short form drama and poetry, creating short poetic plays that revolve around a central theme or themes.
