Public Poetry is celebrating the success of the ARTlines2 national poetry contest with a special FREE event hosted by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) on Thursday, April 23, 2015, in the Brown Auditorium at 6:30 PM. There will be poetry performances, talks about the artwork, and actress Tamarie Cooper will reveal the winners and grand prize winner. A free museum reception will follow.
The winning poems from Artlines2 will be published in a book with a forward by former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. Public Poetry will be raising money for the book by hosting a fun After-Party. You can meet the poets, enjoy fabulous food and drinks, mix and mingle with the literati of Houston. A suggested donation of $10 recurring monthly or $100 gets you on the guest list at Warwick Towers from 8:00 – 10:00 PM.
