A Compendium of Creatures

A Swarm, a Flock, a Host: A Compendium of Creatures book cover

On view November 19, 2013 through April 5, 2014

A Compendium of Creatures exhibits the portfolio of A Swarm, A Flock, A Host: A Compendium of Creatures, the new collaboration from noted artist Darren Waterston and award-winning poet Mark Doty. The work is a contemporary version of a medieval bestiary, a literary and illustrative form in which a number of known animal species, as well as mythological creatures, are cataloged encyclopedically. Doty’s inspired poems take the place of traditional moralizing allegories.
