Garden Rant
Gardening While Intoxicated
Buffalo Spree


A year ago, Licata became the fourth member of a group of garden bloggers with an attitude. Garden Rant one of my favorites: A blend of gossip, news, crusade and, yes, raw rant, it blows the cobwebs out of gardening's mustier corners.

... co-curators Elizabeth Licata and Amy Cappellazzo have magnificently transcended the limitations of what is, at bottom, a show of books. ...Preciousness—the bane of such exhibitions—is nowhere in evidence.

In Company: Robert Creeley's Collaborations

In Company: Robert Creeley's Collaborations presents the joint projects of celebrated poet Robert Creeley with such artists as Georg Baselitz, Francesco Clemente, Jim Dine, R.B. Kitaj, Sol LeWitt, Marisol, Susan Rothenberg, and many others. It explores the long-standing relationship between literature and the visual arts, not only through the actual projects themselves--paintings, print portfolios, books, broadsides, and posters--but also though the correspondence, drafts, and mock-ups created as part of the process. Altogether, 40 years of such collaborations were researched for the exhibition, including interviews with Creeley and the artists and archival research.

In Company: Robert Creeley's Collaborations was planned and executed from 1996-99. It opened at the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University in 4/99 and has since traveled to the New York Public Library (9/99-1/00); the Weatherspoon Art Gallery, University of North Carolina at Greensboro (2/00-4/00); the University of South Florida Art Museum (5/00-700); Stanford University (9/00-1/01) and The University of New Mexico Art Museum (2/01-6/01).

The exhibition is accompanied by a 104-page illustrated catalog (available through the University of North Carolina Press) with an attached CD-ROM. E. Licata is the sole organizer for the project and co-edited the catalog with Amy Cappellazzo (essays by John Yau, E. Licata, and Hank Hine). The project was funded by the New York State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment of the Arts, the Lannan Foundation, and the Lila Wallace/Readers Digest Foundation.
