Spartanburg Art Museum (SAM) presents In Other Words, an exhibition of contemporary art involving the intersection of letters, language, books, and art.

January 19 - March 5 2017 | Tues-Sat 10am-5pm Sun 1-5pm 

In Other Words is a group exhibition featuring the work of seven artists who are fascinated with letters and language. Viewers are challenged to consider words and text not only as a means of gaining and dispersing information, but as visual representations of human thoughts and emotions. The works on view range from photographs of vintage and out-of-print books, sculptural works made of repurposed to-do lists, and canvases embroidered with braille text. These vastly different materials and techniques all contribute to a celebration of the varied methods of visual communication.

opening reception january 19 | 5-8pm
