Art Aloud is an opportunity for writers, poets and artists to share their work, as well as collaborate, in appreciation of National Poetry Month. Artists create work based on a poem, story, lyrics, quotes, or anything to do with the written word, and vice versa for writers and authors. Both the artwork and written word are displayed together but not necessarily designed as one piece.

This is a multi venue art exhibit and Academy Art & Frame Company collaborates with multiple other galleries and locations in Colorado Springs to bring a truly dynamic exhibition of local artists and writers.
This is the 10th year for Art Aloud and the venues include AAFC, Hooked on Books, Sand Creek Library Branch, and Dream Catchers. Each venue will have a reception with a live poetry reading given by the artists and anyone who would like to share their work or favorite poet. Music is absolutely aloud to be shared!

The receptions for each location are as follows:
Blank Canvas Cafe at Dream Catchers, 103 S Wahsatch Ave #106, Colorado Springs, CO 80903
First Friday, April 7, 5-8 pm

Hooked on Books, 12 East Bijou, Colorado Springs, 80903

Please join us at any and all of the receptions to help us celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of Art Aloud!

The Forgiveness show is also still on display throughout the month of April.
