“Moonlight as Liason” (Vizsolyi & Isenbarger)

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet M. A. Vizsolyi: It wasn’t until I saw it so clearly with my own poem that I really felt just how much a particular piece of visual art can influence the piece from the start. It’s akin to the way a piece of background music can influence the way we interpret a scene in a movie. Artist Stacy Isenbarger: I was drawn to the sense of sparse yet weighted space and possibility surrounding a simple walk towards something else.

Poet M. A. Vizsolyi is the author of two books of poetry, Anthem for the Wounded and The Lamp with Wings: Love Sonnets, winner of the National Poetry Series, selected by Ilya Kaminsky. He teaches Creative Writing at Goddard College. Artist Stacy Isenbarger is an artist, professor, mover, and shaker whose creative pursuits include sculpture, installation, & mixed-media drawings. She teaches Art + Design at the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID.

Artist MJ Levy Dickson has taught at MIT, the Boston Architectural Center, and Wenzhou-Kean University in China. Working with people with limited vision, mental health issues, and others, she offers a bridge by which diverse audiences can experience the unexpressed.
