gay love letters distributed across campus, 2009
A project by Cyriaco Lopes with the collaboration of poet Terri Witek @ NYC.
“If you find a forgotten letter, take it. It is yours. It was written for you.
Love letters left in inconspicuous places. The community is free to open, read, and take them home. Otherwise they will just perish with the elements. It is an ephemeral, almost mythology.
Each love letter is signed by a famous historical or fictional gay person. Some are actual quotations (Michelangelo, Sappho, Shakespeare poems), others are imagined (Alexander the Great, Alice Toklas, Socrates). Some contain drawings, photographs, and some are written by poet Terri Witek.”
