Join us throughout April in celebration of National Poetry Month. 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 have created 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 art work and written word must be displayed together but not necessarily designed as one piece.
This year, Academy Art & Frame Company has collaborated with 4 other venues in Colorado Springs- Hooked on Books Downtown, Pikes Peak Market, Sand Creek Public Library, and Tap Traders- to bring a truly dynamic exhibition of local artists and writers. This is the 12th year for Art Aloud. Below is the reception date for each venue and each will have a live reading given by the artists and anyone who would like to share their work or favorite poet. Music is absolutely “aloud” to be shared! This show is open to all mediums and all ages.
