The Poetry of Emily Dickinson and American Art Songs: An Ongoing ICAMus Project.

Since 2002, the ongoing work of ICAMus on American Art Songs has produced concerts, conferences, seminars, lectures, recordings, radio programs and special projects with the participation of visual artists. The poetry of Emily Dickinson set to music by American composers has been a constant center of interest and research, in collaboration with visual artist and choreographer ANTONELLA BARDI, director of SguardiDanza - Center for the Arts. Two of her Dickinson-inspired collages, entitled Parthenogenesis and Kaleidoscope No. 3,  are displayed on this page; they were created respectively in 2003 and in 2000, and belong to the artist’s collection, Montespertoli (Florence, Italy).
