In a preview of the exhibit, Rogers wrote that exhibit represents the various type-based projects he created during his 2016-17 sabbatical.

“Letterforms and words have always played a vital role in my self-initiated projects,” Rogers wrote. “With this show I aim to highlight how one creative endeavor fuels the next. In all, I’m exploring the shape of letters, the meanings of words, and how language is used to make sense of our lives.”
