This symposium will mark a homecoming for all things related to A.R. Ammons. In honor of one of its most famous and talented alumni, Wake Forest University will host a symposium examining his poetry, art, and letters, as well as his contributions to American culture and the arts. The symposium has three central themes:

  • Ammons’ genius in poetry
  • Ammons’ work as a gifted painter
  • Ammons’ personal writings expressed through a dramatic performance of his love letters to his fiancée

Please explore the program of world-class speakers, the one-act play, and the unveiling of 20 museum-quality paintings, all by or about A. R. Ammons and join us November 15-16, 2010 in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library of Wake Forest University.
