Game of Telephone: Coversations in Poetry & Art
June 7, 2019Free
The classic childhood Game of Telephone has been given an artful twist in the unique exhibit, Game of Telephone: Conversations in Poetry & Art. To kick off National Poetry Month in April of 2018 The ARTS Council worked with poet, Michael Czarnecki, who wrote a poem to start a year-long Game of Telephone in the arts. Michael’s poem was given to a visual artist who created a piece inspired by the poem and then the visual art was given to the next poet who created a poem inspired by the artwork. This continued on for a year with the artists and poets seeing only the piece that came immediately before them.
The culmination of this project will be an exhibit at Carey’s Brew House in Corning, opening June 7th with a reception on Thursday, July 11th from 6:00 – 8:00pm. Everyone is invited to this free event. All artworks will be available for purchase. Come see what one poem turned into over the course of a year!
Participating poets and artists include : Michael Czarnecki , Bronson Burdick , Edward Dougherty , Laura Charles , Casey Winston, Yolanda Daliz , Steve Coffman , Bob Ievers , Connie Sullivan-Blum, Amelia Fais Harnas , Rhonda Morton , Bridget Bossart van Otterloo , Lafayette Wattles , Chris Walters , and Akua Lezli Hope .
