Make/Shift Monday: Poem Boxes + Assemblage

  • Redline Gallery 2350 Arapahoe Street Denver, CO, 80205 United States (map)

Join us at RedLine 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. Feel free to BYOB ("B" stands for beer and/or box!) Led by Jesica Carson Davis - poet/artist
