Creative media and digital culture students at Washington State University Vancouver have curated a showcase of digital poetry, "Anthropoetry: Modern Expressions of the Human Condition," that will be exhibited April 23-26 at the Vancouver Community Library, 901 C St.

The exhibit opens at 7 p.m. April 23 with a free public lecture by Dene Grigar, director and associate professor of the creative media and digital culture program. A reception will follow in the library atrium.

The exhibit, which concurs with National Poetry Month, explores electronic poetry, reinvented and reconsidered for digital space. The poems represent artists from the United States, Mexico, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Portugal, Austria, Sweden, Finland and Spain, and will be presented in their original languages.

The lecture is sponsored by a grant from Humanities Washington. The exhibit is sponsored by the Fort Vancouver Regional Library, the creative media and digital culture program and Washington State University Vancouver.
