At Calder / Kelly, the superb exhibition at Lévy Gorvy of works by Alexander Calder and Ellsworth Kelly — whose friendwhip and work influenced and nourished each other — you’ll find some unexpected gems in addition to the perfectly curated art…
…Specially commissioned poems by Simon Perchik, Forrest Gander, and Dan Chiasson adorn the walls that connect the three main viewing spaces. Appliqued to the wall in crisp type, they were so dramatically lit, I was hardpressed to do them justice. As I stopped to read Disparity 2 by Dan Chiasson, I thought how much I’d like a poem on my own wall…
At the well-reviewed DIY Lettering, I found I could custom order lettering to apply to my walls (and even remove it when I want). I could use their online design tool or upload my own file…
….What poem shallI choose?…..
For all those in New York the next month or so, Calder / Kelly is a must-see gem.

Rumi must have been thinking of Improvised Life when he wrote:

Something in Her eyes grabs hold of a
Then I turn and lift
A violin in someone else,
And they turn, and this turning continues,
It has reached you now.
Isn’t that something?
(I probably read this on your site. If so, I’m reminding you today.)
My apologies for publishing your wonderful comment days after you wrote it. OMG, that Rumi poem! Could you have read it here? (:
