*Exhibition at the Lilly Library
Indiana's beloved poet, whose famous "Raggedy Man" inspired schoolchildren in the early part of this century, is the subject of an exhibition at the Lilly Library at Indiana University Bloomington.
Honoring the 150th anniversary of the birth of Hoosier Poet James Whitcomb Riley, the exhibition draws from the library's extensive collection of manuscripts, photographs and memorabilia relating to his life and work.
Known in the early 1900s as the "national poet," Riley had considerable impact on American society and the nineteenth-century literary world. Memorable rhymes such as "Raggedy Man" and "Little Orphan Annie" had such widespread appeal that Riley's image helped market canned vegetables (Hoosier Poet brand asparagus) and songwriters set his poems to music.
The exhibition, curated by Cinda May, features manuscripts, letters, and photographs. It will run through September 4th, and is free and open to the public. The Lilly Library is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Tours available each Friday at 2 p.m. or by appointment for larger groups or special events.
An online version of the exhibition is available on the Web at www.indiana.edu/~liblilly/riley/exhibit.htm.
