and sonosopher Alex Caldiero and poet Sara Caldiero-Oertli will present
Daddy—Dada on November 2nd at the Salt Lake City Public Library at

Poet, polyartist, sonosopher, and scholar of humanities, Caldiero makes things
that appear as language or pictures or music, and then again as the shape of
your own mind. Caldiero is the author of numerous publications, visual and
text-sound works, including Poetry Is Wanted Here! (Dream Garden Press) and
Sound Weave (Differential Records). He has appeared in various films, such as
Trent Harris’ Plan Ten From Outer Space and Luna Mesa. He is featured in
Dictionary of the Avant-Gardes (Routledge, London/NY) and is the subject of
the experimental documentary film The Sonosopher: Alex Caldiero in life…in
sound (Dream Garden Press and OHO Media). He is Artist in Residence at Utah
Valley University.
 
            Sara Caldiero-Oertli was born in New Yorkand migrated to Utahto grow up. Her proximity to wilderness has played
a major roll in inspiring her to teach, write and perform. She is an aspiring
book artist but most of her time is spent making and teaching poetry.  Her
work is centered on the body and understanding language. She enjoys bringing
poetry to desert adventurers and drifters on the street. Her most recent
publication, "Snatch 'N' Sniff" is available at Ken Sanders Rare
Books. 
City Art is
longest running literary arts series in Salt Lake. We present authors of all
genres as well as artists and musicians on the first three Wednesdays of each
month at the Main Public Library from September to May. We feature both local
as well as nationally and internationally acclaimed writers.
 
Most featured readings
are followed by an open reading. City Art is sponsored by the Utah Arts
Council, the Salt Lake City Arts Council, Catalyst,
the Salt Lake City Public Library, Xmission, and the Zoo, Arts, and Park Fund.
 
The event is free and open to the public.  City Art is sponsored by the Utah Arts
Council, the Salt Lake City Arts Council, Zoo, Arts, and Parks, X-mission, and
audience donations.
