Mortals, Nature, and their Spirits

Ice Cube Press

A chapbook of poetry by Salvatore Marici

 

“Like all good folklore, the poems in Salvatore Marici’s Mortals, Nature, and their Spirits read at once meditative and elemental; they seem ‘to talk and laugh with deities.’ The labyrinth, a central image of this rich collection, is not designed to confound—‘the curvy path has neither tricks nor decisions for me to make.’ Instead, Marici’s labyrinth leads to wisdom and a greater awareness of self.” —Stephen Frech, Associate Professor of English, Millikin University, and author of A Palace of Strangers Is No City

 

“Mortals, Nature, and their Spirits by Salvatore Marici is an enchanting array of rhythmic encounters, sensual visions, and perceptive reflections of mysteries and magic of Nature and Nature people. It is a sacred poetic journey well crafted and well taken.” — Rev. Selena Fox, Senior, Minister, Circle Sanctuary

About the author: Salvatore Marici has had his poetry appear in several magazines, anthologies, and web journals including Circle Magazine, Off Channel, Slow Trains (online), Descant and Sweet Lemons 2: International Writings with a Sicilian Accent (Legas, 2010). He has placed and has been a finalist in several poetry contests and was the 2010 Midwest Writing Center’s poet-in-residence. He is a periodic feature poet in the Bucktown Revue.

Marici served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala and he is a civil servant retiree who worked for the Army, mainly with the job title of Agronomist. At both jobs, he managed natural resources.

Art Talk Highlights the CHallenges of Reaching Space

Davenport, IOWA (July 2012) The Figge Art Museum presents the art talk Physics 101: The Challenges of Reaching Space” at 7 pm Thursday, August 2.  Brett McCarty will lead the talk and focus on the obstacles that NASA has had to overcome in their quest to explore outer space. The talk is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition NASA | ART: 50 Years of Exploration and is free with Figge membership or paid admission.

Mr. McCarty’s talk will look at some of the scientific and economic challenges that have faced the NASA program, including the high cost of sending material to space, the challenges of gravity, the biological effects of zero-gravity, sustaining life in orbit and the hazards of radiation and space debris. The talk will also focus the technologies and studies that assisted in NASA’s missions to space.

Participants can also expect to have Mr. McCarty dispel some common misconceptions during the talk. “Despite the popular belief, the gravity in space is not actually ‘zero gravity.’ Instead, it is more accurately described as micro-gravity and orbiting the earth is actually like skydiving only you never hit the earth,” explained Mr. McCarty

Brett McCarty is an adjunct physics instructor, specializing in condensed matter physics, at St. Ambrose University. He received his master’s in science from Iowa State University.

About NASA | ART: 50 Years of Exploration 

In celebration of its 50th anniversary in 2008, NASA collaborated with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum on the exhibition NASA | ART: 50 Years of Exploration. Drawn from the collections of NASA and the National Air and Space Museum, the exhibition features 72 works of art commissioned by the NASA Art Program. Established soon after the inception of the U.S. space program in 1958, NASA’s Art Program provides a unique way to communicate the accomplishments, setbacks, and sheer excitement of space exploration to the public. The selected works span the entire history of NASA and include paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and other media by such artists as Annie Leibovitz, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Norman Rockwell, Andy Warhol, William Wegman and Jamie Wyeth.

NASA | ART at the Figge Art Museum is generously sponsored by the ALCOA Foundation, John Deere, Genesis Health Systems and Cobham, plc.

NASA | ART was organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in cooperation with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. The Smithsonian Community Grant program, funded by MetLife Foundation, is a proud sponsor of “NASA | ART” public programs.
