The Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students invited 2016-18 Hillsborough Poet Laureate and spoken word artist William Davis (@endlesswill) to campus during the final days of Reading Period (May 2 and 3).  William, who is also an educator at the Emerson Waldorf school in Chapel Hill, NC, invites passerby to give him a one word prompt, which he then uses to create an original, heartfelt snippet of art and feeling on a typewriter.

Pop-up locations for his limited-time exhibition include East Pyne Courtyard, the Rocky College Cloisters, and Campus Club.  Additional images and real-time media can be found on the @Princeton_ODUS Instagram account.
