Lines On the Line: An Airing Out of Poetry

Tuesday, April 29, 2014 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm

To celebrate National Poetry Month, we're filling both of our galleries with poetry, hanging clothesline style. Some brilliant (and mostly local) poets have some dirty laundry to air, and we're excited to hang it out for all to see! On the 29th, we're hosting a small reception where people can discuss the pieces with the poets themselves. Did a certain turn of phrase catch your eye? Did you find a particular image touching? Want to mention someone's unmentionables? April 29th is your chance to get up close and personal.
