Exphrasis Poster

Friday, October 06, 2006

Exphrasis Night is just one week away!

The concept of this evening has grown quite a bit since we first started planning it. Some poets have written pieces specifically in response to our work, and others will be reading exphrasis poetry drawn from the work of others.

Here's how to get to SpaceAged Beef:
From Center City:
Take I95 North to Aramingo Ave/Betsy Ross Bridge (Exit 26)
Turn Left onto Aramingo Ave
Turn Left at Church Street
Continue on Church Street and
Turn Right on Orchard Street
4355 will be on your Right - turn into the parking lot and come on up!
(It’s the stone building with the black doors, 3rd floor.)

Take the MFL to the Church Street Station
walk SE on Church Street for 2 blocks, turn left on Orchard

Art Infused With Poetry

Beef and I met at Penn last year. The first time I heard her read an essay, I wanted to get to know her. Her essays were so good, I asked for one of them. I even showed it to my fellow wordsmithing friends. We fortunately met again during the first and second summer sessions. We did an assignment: exphrasis poetry on the photos by Zoe Strauss. The enthusiasm generated by this writing assignment gave birth to Beef's idea. She is a quiet person, somewhat reserved, you know this type of artist--the visionary who's always creating in her head and never speaks too loud. Well, knowing I am well connected to many poets, she said with her eyes flaming in anticipation, what do you think of an exphrasis poetry night coinciding with my open studio on the POST Tour October 14th? (Oh yeah, I forgot to mention she's also a talented painter/photgrapher/and more). I said, Great! I love the idea and I think it would be a success.
