Petina JD Powers, a PhD student and GTA at TWU, has a series of three poems included in the Greater Denton Arts Council (GDAC) exhibition, "Soul Art Renewal: PENS & LENSES." Powers’ poems are part of her larger qualitative work on pandemic poetry and images. The project, a communal response to COVID-19, is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of the CARES Act.  The GDAC brings together poetry and photography, "creating a dialogue to help our community better understand our communal response to COVID-19.”  The exhibition is in the Gough Gallery at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center through August 14, 2021.

As sociologists thriving in an uncivilized war of words in today’s America, I do believe that it is our responsibility to act as instruments of grace and models of understanding as we coexist with our unique differences and common goals." Petina JD Powers
