Who’s Who of Art Salon: Spotlight on Kyle Dargan


November Art Salon is this Wednesday at Longview Gallery! Between now and then, get to know a few of the artists performing.

Kyle Dargan is a 2010 DCCAH Literary Artist Fellow and the founding editor of Post No Ills magazine. You might recognize Dargan from our November ArtNews, Imprints, where he composed a poetic response to E. Ethelbert Miller’s Divine Love:

LETTERS & STONE

I would have loved you like that.

We fought against the invisible

~ E. Ethelbert Miller

Like the Supreme

Court and Capitol love

the Hill’s evening silence,

how the non-seers love

our unobstructed noonday sun—D.C.,

I would have loved you like that

For the remainder of the poem, visit Kyle’s page.

Dargan’s debut collection of poems, The Listening, won the Cave Canem Prize in 2003. Since then he, has been published in Callaloo, Ploughshares, and Shenandoah. His most recent release, Bouquet of Hungers is his second collection of poetry, reflecting on his many passions as a poet and what it means to be an African American literary artist.
