Virtual Poetry: When Trash Is a Poet’s Treasure

Tuesday, June 15 | 4 to 5 pm
Free; All ages welcome
General Registration

Just as artist Hugo McCloud employs discarded plastic bags as the colorful medium of the works included in his from where I stand exhibition, poets can use discarded print media to create poems that are works of art. So gather a stack of magazines, newspapers, and even books that were destined for the recycle bin, and join Aldrich educator Barb Jennes to turn trash into poetic treasure! (Bring scissors and glue, too). All ages welcome.
