English professor’s poem part of Minneapolis art exhibit

 Dr. Joel Pace, professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, and Minneapolis artist Kevin Zappa recently collaborated on a work of art that now is on exhibit at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. 

Zappa's "A Walk Around Lake Nokomis" features Pace's poem "Poli Sci Fi." The work of art has its origins in a previous musical collaboration between Zappa and Pace, who co-wrote and recorded a song called "Poli Sci Fi." 

Their work currently is on display in "Afterimage: Life after the Death of Photography," an exhibit that highlights artists who are practicing historic photographic processes in this increasingly digital age. 

The exhibit runs through Feb. 13.
