Poems from the Sky
- The Gallery at Building 110: LMCC’s Art Center at Governors Island
- Dates & Times
- Saturday, September 17, 2011, 12–2PM
This Family Program is inspired by the exhibition The Truth Is I Am You, a project by The Cause Collective, which places speech bubbles of poetry in 24 different languages on the walls along with silver helium inflated balloons floating in LMCC's gallery at Building 110. We will explore poetry and stories that come out of the great blue canopy of our earth's sky. While all visitors are invited to contribute to the poem by writing their own truths on the surface of the balloons, for this event children will be able to make books in the shape of blimps and float their own poetry upon them.
Co-sponsored by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, and Poets House.
Free and open to the public. For information about Governors Island, including ferry schedules, click here.
