In connection with the Annual Juried Art Exhibition, Valley Art Center will host Ekphrastacy – Artists Talk + Poets Respond on December 1 at 6pm, in partnership with Heights Arts. The series, which is modeled after the Greek term Ekphrasis, or a poem that is a vivid description of a work of art, is a celebration of both visual and spoken word artistry.
Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate, Ray McNiece, along with Cleveland poet Siaara Freeman, and former Cleveland Heights Poets Laureate Christine Howey and Mary Weems will compose and read poems directly inspired by exhibited artworks, creating an interesting and engaging dialogue while surrounded by the art.
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
