Join the Smart Museum of Art and Poetry Foundation for a poetry reading, discussion, and creative writing workshop.

Presented in conjunction with Down Time: On the Art of Retreat, the workshop explores poems by black poets that imagine, perform, or create places of respite. The evening also features a tour of the exhibition and a guided writing exercise that engages with the poetic form as a space for escape, renewal, and transformation. 

FREE, open to all. Space may be limited, please register in advance

Presented by the Smart Museum of Art and the Poetry Foundation.
