Andrea Dezsö’s installation, Sometimes in My Dreams I Fly, is nothing short of spectacular. The exhibit has been creating a buzz since it first opened at Rice Gallery in April, and fortunately, students from WITS Summer Creative Writing Workshops were among those studying the magical tunnel books Dezsö made from layers of construction paper to create an alien-like fantasy world transcending space and time. The students turned their fascination into poetry and will read their work to a public audience July 28th at the gallery at 7:00 pm.

The Words & Art reading is a free, public event and will include work from others who were inspired by Dezsö’s multi-dimensional dreamland. The exhibit will be on display until August 8th. For details, visit the Rice Gallery website.
