Hats Off! to Lenard D. Moore, associate professor of English and director of the University of Mount Olive literary festival, who joined UMO Artist-in-Residence Larry Lean and Franklin Gross, assistant professor of music, for “The Satire Project," a collaborative project sponsored by the North Carolina Arts Council, the Arts Council of Wayne County, and the University of Mount Olive. Lean created twelve acrylic paintings. Moore wrote a poem about each of the paintings. And Gross put music to each poem based on the painting.
