The exhibit, the second year of of the gallery’s four-year art series exploring sense of place, finds inspiration in Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass,” focusing selection and curating on three poems: “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d Memories of President Lincoln”; “For Him I Sing”; and “Song of Myself.”
