She graduated from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 2010 with a Bachelors in Fine Art. She is a long time collaborator and curator of alternative art and poetry venues in Cincinnati including U•turn Art Space, Important People Reading Series, and Hobohaus Gallery…….she’s got some of her art on her Facebook page, she’s particularly fond of sculpture.



Alex Bleecker (based in Seattle) is a nonstop car accident happening inside the gall bladder of a newborn American Quarter horse. Just kidding – horses don’t have gallbladders. They’re trickle feeders. As a Made at Hugo House fellow for 2014-15, Alex is currently working on a project wherein he is responding to the beautiful, haunting, surreal inquiries that Pablo Neruda’s makes in the Book of Questions (1974) – his final utterances. He’ll share some of those responses tonight.
