Looking for poetry? Art? Smart, interesting people? Join Mimi Herman, 2017 Piedmont Laureate, at The ArtsCenter for a free Art and Poetry Treasure Hunt. Enjoy an evening of writing ekphrastic poetry (poems about art) on Friday,April 14th as you wander the galleries featured in Chapel Hill and Carrboro’s 2nd Friday ArtWalk.
Drop by The ArtsCenter, 300-G E. Main Street in Carrboro, any time between 6:00 and 7:30 pm to pick up your treasure map, a notepad and pen, and the secret directions to create your poems. You might write a love letter from one piece of art to another, or tell us what’s happening just beyond the borders of that intriguing photograph you saw. At 8:00 pm, we’ll meet back at The ArtsCenter for an open mic reading, to share the treasures you’ve created.
Whether you’ve been writing poems all your life, or your poetry career came to an abrupt halt at “Roses are red,” we’d love to have you join us! All ages are welcome.
