FREE, open to all. 

In celebration of Poetry is Everything’s closing weekend, join us for an open mic night of poetry readings and performances. All are welcome to recite a short poem—whether it be your own or one simply you love.

The event will also feature an unfurling of a participatory scroll in the galleries that has accumulated drafts and drawings from Smart Museum visitors over the course of the exhibition. Our collective poem.

Signing up for a reading slot in advance is encouraged. Walk-on recitations will be accommodated as capacity allows.
