Description

The Museum of Art is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Basil King, whose drawings have been featured in books by Allen Ginsberg, Paul Pines, and Paul Blackburn. Mr. King's drawings also appear regularly in the eclectic literary periodical "Mulch." Not to be confused with illustrations, Basil King's funky drawings accompany offbeat poetry and prose, adding the artist's visual statement to the written word. Included with King's drawings for Ginsberg's "Visions of the Great Rememberer" and other publications will be miniature clay figures by Mr. King and some of Mr. Ginsberg's literary materials.
