April 20th at 7pmProgram
The artists of All Access and Spotlight artist, Charles Schweigert have inspired some of the area’s best poets to respond with a live performance on April 20th at Heights Arts! The original poems written just for this show will be read by current Poet Laureate Ray McNiece, Siaara Freeman, Elijah Blumofe, and Rachel Wiley. This exceptional lineup will also include remarks from the artists themselves about the work on display in the gallery until May 14th. Visitors have been very enthusiastic about the innovative pieces in these exhibitions that were carefully selected for the conversations they spark about access, innovation, and community. Don’t miss the powerful ability of these poets to amplify the voices of visual art with spoken word.
