Stanza - poetry inspiring art.
We asked poets to submit their works and then matched them with visual artists. Stop by to see the art they inspired, as well as to read their poetry. Selected poets will be reading their works. 8PM musical performance.
We will also have limited copies of a book of the show - all art and poetry - available for purchase.
Opening night will feature cartoon band or "bande dessinee" Spooky Action, headed by Andrew Olmstead and Elk Paauw. Their live-drawing performance art is like Bob Ross scored to synth jams, but tackles heavier themes including issues of personal identity, depression, and the Sublime in nature. For Stanza, they will perform some of their poetry-based songs, including hits by Rainer Maria Rilke and William Blake as well as original poems written and composed by Andrew Olmstead.
Ballard Night Out is presented by Greater Ballard Arts - supporting arts and cultural events in Ballard's 98107 & 98117 zip codes.
