  2. ENDANGERED ALPHABETS works by Tim Brookes

    January 17, 2019, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM @ Vermont State House

    From January 3 – February 1, 2019 visitors to the Vermont State House will see an exhibition that combines something familiar—pieces of Vermont curly maple—with something utterly unfamiliar: hand-carved texts in writing whose very letters face extinction. The crafted carvings, of Vermont writer/artist Tim Brookes, bring together elements of calligraphy, woodwork, linguistics, anthropology and human rights to address a question that is rarely asked, but directly affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide: what happens when a culture loses its alphabet? This unique and insightful exhibit will be celebrated with a Reception and Artist Talk on January 17th from 4:00-6:00pm with Tim Brookes and Lt. Governor David Zuckerman.
