Spray paint on tunnel ceiling and walls, 2016
This work was inspired by wall poem projects in Charlotte, N.C., and Leiden, Netherlands. It mentions bent corner boxes, a technique in wood box-making that artist Beth Seetch first became acquainted with on a trip to Oregon’s indigenous communities. The setting of the tunnel between the cemetery and the stream is well suited for these words. High school students in the Lafayette College Experience program installed the poem on the tunnel.
Originally from Chicago, Seetch lives in Easton, Pa. She is a writer, editor, poet, and book artist who collaborates with visual artists. She was awarded a Pennsylvania Council of the Arts Literature
