The 2015 exhibition series in MONA’s Postmaster Gallery explores poetry by Nebraska’s laureates, creating a synthesis of the literary with the visual. Aesthetic delights and sensory speech that connect us with our soulful self and the experiences of others are stirringly evoked through the visual language of metaphor. The final exhibition in the series features artworks imbued with the spirit of the poetry of former Nebraska Poet Laureate John Neihardt.
