MOLA’s Poetry & Art Series 2009: Three for $300 Poetry Slam, Jan. 21

On Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 7:00 p.m., Poetry & Art in the Museum of the Living Artist hosts another poetry/visual art combination slam for writers, artists and performers. This is a winner-takes-all poetry competition with a slight twist: Performers who bring and show visual art connected in some way to their poetry will earn extra points. Performers may also use (and are encouraged to use) artwork hanging in the museum’s current exhibit. Simply pick a painting, and we’ll display it front and center for the audience while you read. Winner takes home $300.

Signups start at 6:30 p.m., but performers can pre-register by emailing poetryandartsd@gmail.com. Slam starts at 7:00 p.m. Due to the number of participants in our previous slams, this time we will put all names in the hat for lottery and take only 18 performers. Top three finishing poets will be considered for a full feature in the Museum of the Living Artist. Come on down and slam, judge or simply enjoy the show!

  Entry is $5, free for members. Event takes place at SDAI/MOLA, 1439 El Prado, Balboa Park. Contact Michael Klam at mkklam@gmail.com, 619-957-3264 (direct) or 619-236-0011 (museum) for more information. To learn more about Poetry Slam, visit www.poetryslam.com.
