Pictured is a detail from Shirley, an 18-foot, mixed-media collage by artist Stephanie Bacon, AB’87. Shown in March at Montana’s Missoula Art Museum, the piece combines drawings, ticket stubs, and lines from Charlotte Brontë’s novel (top). “It disorients you if you try to read it—we’re not used to reading on a huge expanse,” says Bacon, whose art focuses on language’s visual form. “It puts the act of reading into a very different place.”
