Before spring fully captures our imagination, Dr. Jarrod Nicholas Dortch invites us to revisit winter in his work titled Cold. Consisting of a haiku superimposed on a snowy scene, Cold is part of a project in which Dortch spotlights South Indianapolis neighborhoods. An assistant professor of communication at Ivy Tech Community College, Dortch says his haikus are inspired by 1970s graffiti duo SAMO© – a collaboration between teenaged Jean-Michel Basquiat and Al Diaz.
