Art Aloud is an opportunity for writers, poets and artists to share their work, as well as collaborate, in appreciation of National Poetry Month. Artists create work based on a poem, story, lyrics, quotes, or anything to do with the written word, and vice versa for writers and authors. Both the artwork and written word are displayed together but not necessarily designed as one piece.
This is a multi venue art exhibit and Academy Art & Frame Company collaborates with multiple other galleries and locations in Colorado Springs to bring a truly dynamic exhibition of local artists and writers.
This is the 11th year for Art Aloud and the venues include AAFC, Hooked on Books, and Sand Creek Library Branch. Each venue will have a reception with a live poetry reading given by the artists and anyone who would like to share their work or favorite poet. Music is absolutely "aloud" to be shared!
