Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art


I’m so honored to share that I have been commissioned by the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art to create poetry in conjunction with the Museum’s superb fall exhibitions, Narrow Road to the Interior: contemporary Japanese artists, and, Julianne Swartz: How Deep Is Your

SMoCA’s gala event, “ART OUT LOUD: POETRY IN THE GALLERIES,” will be held Thursday evening, December 5, at 7PM

It will be an outstanding celebration of poetry and art and everyone is invited to attend! I am very excited to participate in this wonderful occasion.

NARROW ROAD TO THE INTERIOR CONTEMPORARY JAPANESE ARTISTS
Narrow Road to the Interior, takes readers on a pilgrimage—both worldly and immaterial. The artists in this exhibition also evoke the idea of earthly and spiritual passage in paintings, sculptures, photographs and installations using elemental materials such as wood, paper, ash, minerals and ink.

JULIANNE SWARTZ: HOW DEEP IS YOUR
Acclaimed for her unique blend of high and low-tech materials, artist Julianne Swartz often makes the ephemeral presence of the viewer fundamental to her work. Her art quietly celebrates contradictions and dichotomies that invite us to slow down and sharpen our senses.

I’ll be participating in this event with a few other poets whose names I don’t know yet. As soon as I do, I’ll certainly post them here on the blog. In November, my fellow poets and I will be attending a private introductory tour with the Museum’s Associate Curator in order to become acquainted with the exhibitions and to select the particular artworks on which we will be basing our poems. So thrilling!

Save the Date! Please come join in the festivities.
