Art in Common Places Presents Two free Programs to Celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day

Things To Do

Art in Common Places is pleased to present two programs to celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day, April 27 to April 28, as well as National Poetry Month. The April 27 program, noon at Selby Public Library, features poets Melanie Lavender and Don McLagan and artist Ann Burroughs. The April 28 program, 6 p.m. on Zoom, features poet Danny Shot and artist Mara Torres González. Both programs include poetry readings and discussions about their collaborative works with Art in Common Places. Registration for these free events is required at scgovlibrary.librarymarket.com – keyword search “art in common places.” For more information, visit ArtinCommonPlaces.com. Art in Common Places was founded in 2020 by Cynthia Burnell, Leslie Butterfield, and Teresa Carson. The non-profit’s mission is to put art – in the form of broadsides that combine images and words – in public places such as laundromats, car washes, medical offices, and other common places for people to enjoy in their daily lives. For each broadside, an artist is matched with a poet, and they spend six weeks collaborating on a piece based on a theme they choose together.
