(Time - 2pm)
Poets & enthusiasts & peeps who want to see a really neato art installation in some vacant Slavic Village houses... you are invited to come bring your poems for this "chime in" reading. Probably bring a fold up chair for yourself, too. The reading is probably at 2pm on Sunday May 17, but the installation is available for viewing all weekend. See http://slavicvillage.org/roomstolet for more info.
Art in cover photo by Jeff Chiplis from 2014: "Princess AC, Her Dreams & Nightmares." Chiplis's neon art will also be part of 2015's installation.
Acclaimed poet Yuyutsu RD Sharma will be at this reading! He is a Nepalese poet. He is also doing a workshop and reading at Mac's Backs in Coventry May 13 at 5: http://www.macsbacks.com/event/nepal-poet-yuyutsu-sharma-workshop-reading
Led by Slavic Village Development, Rooms to Let: Cleveland seeks to continue the conversation around vacancy and the plight of Cleveland’s historic neighborhoods in the wake of the foreclosure crisis. This year’s event will expand this dialogue to a new group of visual and performance artists to further interpret the evolution of community and recovery.
