Endangered Alphabets - Works by Tim Brookes

Hand-carved texts on Vermont curly maple in writing whose very letters face extinction. The crafted carvings, of Vermont writer/artist Tim Brookes, bring together elements of calligraphy, woodwork, linguistics, anthropology and human rights to address a question that is rarely asked, but directly affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide: what happens when a culture loses its alphabet? Artist Talk/ Reception Thursday, January 17 4:00 – 6:00pm – State House Cafeteria Talk 4:30 to 5:15pm Tim Brookes and Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman
