Make/Shift Monday Presents: Poem Boxes and Assemblage

Join us and our friends from Lighthouse Writers Workshop as we create poem boxes using text from Claudia Rankine's Citizen: An American Lyric as inspiration. Poem boxes are sculptural interpretations of text, like a literary diorama; they are whatever you want them to be. Supplies will be provided, including found objects, though participants are encouraged to bring small items that inspire you, as well as a box you want to use (for example: an old shoebox). At the end we'll discuss how Rankine's text affected us, and how we transformed words and objects into art.

Free and open to the public! BYOB ("B" stands for beer and/or box!) 

This program is part of a series of Denver Talks events

Hosted By: Jesica Carson Davis - poet/artist
