The poets are coming…

Filed under: Activities off Campus,Creative Writing,Literature — ATH @ 12:18 am

On Thursday, June 11, from 8-9 p.m., Seattle Art Museum will be overrun by practitioners of the word. According to information on SAM’s website,

“A.K. “Mimi” Allin, the Poetess at Green Lake, curates poetry-infused “instigations” in SAM’s downtown galleries. This evening features 100 poets on the escalator, in the galleries, at the balconies, draped over the grand staircase, whispering poems, creating impasses, here and there, in various parts of the museum, over the course of an hour. Whispers will be broadcast to the main lobby and heard locally by those wandering the museum.

Hosted by everyone from spoken word poets to literary figures, these evenings of words as art are at once intimate and engaging.

Free with museum admission. SAM Word meets in the Brotman Forum.”

No word yet on whether any of the City of Destiny’s outstanding poets, including several members of the department, are taking part in this literary event, but it promises to be an evening rich and strange.
