April 2012: Victoria Martinez

Welcome poetry month!  Get your poems ready and bring them with you to the next Proyecto Latina because we want to hear them.  Then you are welcome to chime-in on the collaborative poem we are creating in response to the work of our featured artist Victoria Martinez, who is exhibiting a new body of work at Cobalt Studio in April.  Excited to integrate poetry into her work, Victoria is providing pieces of cloth for this activity that will be pieced together to create an exquisite corpse.  As for the Chisme Box–she will be front row, center and provide kudos and a high five if your chismes are in haiku format!

When: Monday, April 16, 2012
Where: Cobalt Studio, 1950 W. 21st St.
Time: 7 p.m.
