Art and Poetry Interlace at Garfield Park Arts Center's Newest Exhibition

INDIANAPOLIS -- (March 11, 2010) Become inspired this Saturday at the Poetry in Paint Opening Reception at Garfield Park Arts Center! Observe how art motivates art as you read poetry and see paintings with shared themes. Enjoy an evening of artistic collaboration as you meet the artists, listen to live poetry readings, and enjoy refreshments.

Coordinated by Indianapolis-based author and artist Lylanne Musselman, the exhibition features a creative writing project sponsored by Second Story, a nonprofit writing project serving kids, schools and community organizations in Indianapolis. The free opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. March 13 will feature poets performing live readings of the works featured in the main gallery exhibit as well as interactive writing and art activities. Stay for Vintage Movie Night featuring the film Laddie (1940), based on the book by Indiana author/poet Gene Stratton-Porter.

It's exciting to see how some of Indianapolis' "best artists are inspired by their peers to reach incredible levels of creativity," said Garfield Park Arts Center Manager Tom Weidenbach. The exhibition also reveals the highly subjective nature of art. Visitors will be surprised at the qualities of themes that resonated with artists and served as the impetus for new work.

The Poetry in Paint Exhibition will be on display from March 13 through May 2. Hours are 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays, 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. Saturdays, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.
