Mary B. Martin School of the Arts and ETSU’s Department of Art & Design will present Endangered Alphabets exhibition in ETSU’s Slocumb Galleries beginning Oct. 28, with an opening reception at 5 p.m. in the galleries and artist lecture by Tim Brookes at 6 p.m. in Ball Hall Auditorium. When educator and author Brookes discovered that more than a third of the world’s alphabets are endangered and no longer taught, he began carving alphabets into wood. His resulting Endangered Alphabets Project brings together enigmatic artwork, myriad cultures and the function and grace of language.
