Poetry Amidst Art at Th!inkArts

The beauty of poetry is that it can take innumerable forms, conjuring its own brand of intrigue in each unique phrase. Th!nkArt's exhibition of work by Iwona Biedermann and Arica Hilton, "Between the Lines of Beauty," on display at their Hubbard Street Salon, will be accompanied by three different styles of poetry, by three vastly different poets for "An Evening of Words." Poets Kevin Coval, Mary Dean Cason, and Elise Paschen will read their work amidst the exhibit's visual offerings tomorrow (11/16) from 5pm to 9pm. Kevin Koval, seasoned Def Jam poet, will present works from his book of poetry, L-vis Lives!: Racemusic Poems. His words take up the political and the artful, and provide his commentary on numerous facets of American culture -- his website currently features a poem about the Occupy Movement. Expect an evening of ruminations and examinations on this contemporary America. It all takes place at Th!nkArt Salon, 670 W. Hubbard St., First Floor.
