Poet Gary Short is the next visiting artist at the Resident Artist Program in Silver City

Short’s book ‘Flying Over Sonny Liston’ won the Western State Book Award. One of North America’s most remarkable narrative poets, Short lived for years at American Flat on the Comstock near historic Silver City. The Online Nevada Encyclopedia (ONE) explains, “Gary Short has surveyed the universe of Guatemala, Albania, Mexico and, most recently, Tasmania. Throughout all of these journeys, he has returned to the landscape that claims him: the Comstock. He thinks of this last place and Guatemala as his twin homes, his private domain that both welcome the itinerant one on his terms.” For more information, contact Resident Artist Program director Quest Lakes at 847-0742.
