The Madrona Project is a series of anthologies produced by Empty Bowl Press. Each substantial volume is themed and assembled by a different editorial team. For the most recent edition, The Madrona Project: Vol III Number 1: Art in a Public Voice, the editors, Samuel & Sally Green and Michael Daley, invited responses to public artworks throughout the Pacific Northwest. The resulting anthology is beautifully produced, with more than 50 color images of the art along with the ekphrastic responses.
“Non-Sign II” is a sculpture by Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo of Lead Pencil Studio. It sits on a low knoll on the U.S. side of the southbound Peace Arch border crossing from Canada. J.I. Kleinberg and I co-wrote “Non-Sign II: Oculus” — a poem in two voices — in response to the sculpture and are honored to have it included in this impressive publication, which can be ordered through Empty Bowl.
