This workshop is presented by librarian Tolonda Henderson, who has presented at academic conferences on Harry Potter and libraries.

The latest exhibit to be unveiled in Fenwick Gallery features collaborations between visual arts and creative writing students at George Mason University. This exhibit marks the 6th annual exchange – “Call + Response” — curated by professors Helen Frederick (School of Art) and Susan Tichy (English Department) as part of the annual Fall for the Book celebration. The Call + Response theme this year is “In 24 hours, everywhere the dawn rises again.”
Artists and writers were placed into pairs, with one as “caller” and the other as “responder.” Come and see the work each pair produced from their collaboration, ranging in medium from poetry to painting, artists books, photography, printmaking, video and more. The exhibit will be displayed in Fenwick Gallery through early October.
