In September 2014 the Walthall Artist Fellows held their group exhibition at Gallery 72 in conjunction with the Zuckerman Museum of Art. As the only writer among the Walthall Artist Fellows, Alex Gallo-Brown sent each of the other fellows (visual artists) a poem and asked them to make a piece of visual work in response.
The resulting collection of poems and visual work was then made into a book by a local press and published for the group exhibition. In this recording, Gallo-Brown gives a reading of the poems from this collection.
