First come, first served.

William Stafford Calligraphy Project

This exhibition is open during Central Library's hours of operation.

In honor of the 100th birthday of William Stafford, a former Oregon poet-laureate, the Portland Society for Calligraphy is presenting the William Stafford Calligraphy Project, an exhibit of calligraphic renderings of some of Mr. Stafford’s poems and other writings. 

William Stafford’s rich body of work provides the unifying theme for both framed broadsides and artists books.  Visitors will have the chance to enjoy his writings and see how calligraphers use design, color, and choice of script to express their reactions to his work. 

The opening reception will be on September 28 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.  


Target audience:

Adults, Educators, Families, Seniors, Teens
