Artist Opportunities

Friday, August 9: opening of Uncanny Visions 4, featuring a range of performance and video works which address the elusive medium of poetry. Performers include such luminaries as Bunny Rogers and Ann Hirsch. Organizers describe it as follows:

Uncanny Visions IV tackles that most persistent and elusive medium “poetry.” Specifically, we will feature a range of performance and video artists who function as self-styled "poets" in the most open mic sense of the word, but not. 

Specific, but not. We are intrigued.
