POEMobile Pop-Up

  • The Studio Museum in Harlem 144 W 125th St New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

Together with Columbia University School of the Arts and PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, The Studio Museum in Harlem is thrilled to host an uptown, pop-up installment of POEMobile, a hand-painted truck that projects poems onto buildings and underscores them with music and live performances. Come join us as POEMobile—produced by City Lore and Bowery Arts + Science—makes its way to 125th Street, bringing poetry to life in the Museum's courtyard and atrium. The evening's performances will celebrate a new box set of twelve African poetry chapbooks edited by Chris Abani and Kwame Dawes, and published by Akashic Books.
