Love Poetry and love that it's going on, on a regular basis at the Fire House Art Center ~ Love to be able to have a Poetry and Art / Ekphrasis Session monthly as well ~

Ekphrasis or ecphrasis is the graphic, often dramatic description of a visual work of art. In ancient times this referred to a description of any thing, person, or experience. The word comes from the Greek ek and phrasis, 'out' and 'speak' respectively, verb ekphrazein, to proclaim or call an inanimate object by name.

Any thoughts on making this happen? Anyone ?

hasn't it occurred to you Claudette...whenever you're involved in a public project, it's mostly about making money and promoting yourself/art...it's not appreciated...
